Scooter mitts 1960s knitting pattern
One to add to the autumn knit list - a fabulous pair of 1960s mod-style scooter mitts. This groovy hybrid of glove and mitten allows you more finger flexibility than the tradtional mitten, meaning that you can, say, pick up your front door key, or use your scooter brake, without losing the warmth of traditional mittens.
This is also a great project for knitters who have made mittens but are still a little nervous of knitting fiddly gloves. The original pattern is made in black and red stripes.
From Stitchcraft magazine, 1964.
