So from the very first episode, we meet Mrs. Fitzgibbons, the cook and keeper of the keep for Castle Leoch. She is decked head to toe in homespun and wears a pair of very large loose fitting fingerless mitts. I just love Annette Badland and feel she does a fabulous job as Mrs. Fitz.
I will confess that I like my fingerless mitts, gloves and mittens to be fitted, so I altered this pattern to make them a bit more tapered.
These are knit flat and sewn together along the thumb side.
