blue tonal striped handknit fingerless mitts at a local yarn shop

Shop sample: Squirrely Mitts

blue tonal striped handknit fingerless mitts and the mini skeins used to make them

Squirrely Mitts by Amy Gunderson are simple, elegant, striped fingerless mitts worked in tonal shades of yarn. Great for mini-skeins and leftovers alike!

Our Squirrely Mitt sample was knit by Bekah in 8 colors of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light Unicorn Tails, fingering-weight 100% superwash merino wool. Unicorn tails come in a rainbow of beautiful hand-dyed colors. 

We also think that Knitted Wit Gems (20g/92 yds) would make stellar Squirrely Mitts, so we've curated several bundles if you'd prefer to just grab-n-go - including a “Surprise Me!” option if you want us to choose for you.
