Comfort Zone
Free fingerless gloves knitting pattern

Skill Level: Easy

The Comfort Zone mitts were designed for my boyfriend’s grandma. She has trouble with her hands, so gloves and mitts are an every day necessity. This pair is casual and laid back and perfect for use on a daily basis.

The simplicity of the Comfort Zone mitts make them knit up quickly and also allow them to be completely wearable on a daily basis. The lack of frills and baubles keep these gloves comfortable and easy to work in.
