Very pretty fingerless mitts, but the knitting is definitely not for the beginner. The colorwork is not too complicated, though, and the designer provides a chart that. I’ve had these mitts finished for a while but haven’t gotten photos of them until today. The pattern is Endpaper Mitts by Eunny Jang. The yarn is. Links and Resources.

I’ve been a little stalled out on the knitting, lately yes, even the entrelac: You know the feeling? Seems just now, I’d rather cook, or read, or curl up with a cup of coffee, without ever-present yarn and needles in-hand. I think it’s just plain old fatigue, really – lately, nothing I’ve knit has felt like much fun. Interesting maybe, absorbing certainly, but not particularly entertaining.
I want to get back into being excited about projects, itching to try something out, deeply satisfied by translation from idea to tactile substance. A spontaneous, light, bagatelle of a knit – that’s what I need right now.
Enter the Endpaper Mitts. They’re tiny enough that they’re no commitment at all; they provided a good field for trying out some tweaks to techniques a Better Tubular Cast On, anyone?
They’ll also be eminently practical: I’m pretty pleased – can you tell?
My own follows below Yarn: A pair is made of two identical, reversible mitts. I’ve used two fingering-weight Merinos, but jumperweight Shetland, sock yarns, or any other yarn of the right weight would work just as well.

These would be an excellent first project for a novice colorwork knitter – they’re small and snappy and dead-simple, the pattern is easy to memorize and predict and they’re worked in the round, so you’ll learn to read your knittingand they’ll teach you some shaping basics. Do let me know of any questions, or anything that needs clarification – I’ll incorporate all of it into the PDF version. I’ll also be sharing some first-time colorwork tips and illustrating how I do some of the methods called for in the next couple days.
You may find that colorwork is smoother and gauge easier to maintain on wooden needles rather than slick metal. As always, check your gauge before beginning with a swatch in the round.
This pattern uses gauge changes to fit three different sizes. To determine your size, wrap a flexible tape measure around the knuckles of your dominant hand, excluding the thumb, and find the circumference.

For your convenience, the full shaping lines of the thumb gusset have been provided in chart form Chart B. When working this section of the piece, the chart must be mirrored for the back of the work. For example, for Row 2 endpape the chart, you would read from right to left as usual, work a purled “seam” stitch not included on chart and then read from left to right for the second half.
As straight sections are symmetrical, Chart A is always read from right to left. Using the Italian tubular cast-on method and main color, cast on 56 stitches onto a single smaller DPN. Work the first two rows flat as follows:. Distribute stitches equally onto 4 smaller DPNs 14 sts on emdpaper needle.
Join, being careful not to twist. Continue to work in k1, p1 ribbing for 13 rows more. Attach contrast color and change to larger needles. Continue to work in Chart A as set until 3 full row repeats have been worked, continuing to work purled “seam” stitches as established.
Work across Chart B to first false “seam” stitch, m1 in pattern, p1 nitts main color, m1 in pattern, work Row endpapre of Chart B working from left to rightp Continue as set, working an increase round as above every 3rd row 8 times more.

Rndpaper by Eunny on November 16, The way in which you approach all your projects even the “light” ones as a way of learning or trying something new is really inspiring. I could say it’s the detail that sets your work apart, but really what I mean is the quality of attention you bring to whatever you do, whether it’s designing or executing.
I always look forward to reading about what you’re working on next! I usually eschew smaller projects for big, ambitious projects, but these are awesome, and would be perfect for winter. They remind me of your Norwegian Jacket, which I’m anxiously waiting on a pattern for, along with the Arrowhead Pullover and the Striped Cardigan. Bea Apple November 16, ErickaJo November 16, Thanks so much for this pattern!
I’ve wanted to learn colorwork and it looks like the perfect project: Minh November 16, Leah November 16, Risa November 16, I just finished gathering up all the yarn and such that I plan on using for your Deep Argyle Vest. I’ve found myself stalling because I really want to wet my feet with a small project. Here you are to the rescue again. OK, for someone who is feeling rather blase about knitting, that is a pretty kickass pattern!!!
I don’t even wear fingerless mitts and I would consider knitting up a pair of those!!! Elinor November 16, Monika November 16, Denise November 16, Jen November 16, I had to de-lurk to tell you how absolutely gorgeous these are and to thank you so much for providing the pattern! My knitting resolution this year is to learn how to do colorwork and I would love to attempt these!
I also have a few Koigu 1 skein impulse purchases and since it wasn’t enough for a pair of socks, I didn’t know what to do with them.
Bertha November 16, Christina November 16, I have to agree with Johanna, I really appreciate what you put into both your designs and your executions. Everything’s gorgeous and I learn something new everytime. Thank you for another inspiring project! Wendie November 16, Eunny, you are a very generous person. I am going to start these tomorrow – right after I get me to a printer.
Max Daniels November 16, These look like great fun, I’ve actually already started a pair and gotten through the ribbing and the beginning of hte colorwork. One problem I had though was that the charts and instructions weren’t printing with my printer’s default settings. I just opened them as images and printed that way, but weirdness.
Anyway, I’ll probably have photos up of my start tonight or tomorrow. Jessimuhka November 16, I decided to make fingerless mitts and have been looking at all the styles on the internet but nothing really satisfied. Just last night I decided I would design my own and maybe do some colorwork. Your inspiration is so timely that I had to smile. Thank you for generously sharing your pattern. You are such an inspiration. Punkin November 16, I’ve been meaning to learn how to knit the thumb gusset of a wristwarmer for the past three months.
Valerie November 16, Thank you for sharing this pattern. I think I’ll try this as a preparation for the deep v vest and the venezia sweater. Crystal November 16, Sandra November 16, I would just like you to know that you are wonderful and amazing.
I bought my first issue of Interweave Knits yesterday because of your breathtaking pattern, and now you offer us elegant mitts?
