McDougal Mitts


My partner, Terry, was watching a film called Burke & Hare and a character called Helen McDougal (played by Isla Fisher) was wearing a pair of green gloves with red edging and red bows. She wore them very briefly and I never actually saw them. Terry told me I should make “green fingerless gloves with red ends and red bows” So these gloves were born. I named them McDougal mits after the character who wore them.
Very easy pattern. If you are not comfortable knitting in the round there is an option to knit flat as well.
