My Knothole Mitts from Interweave Crochet Accessories 2014

Featured in the new Interweave Crochet Accessories 2014 are . . .

 . . . my granny square fingerless gloves - dubbed the Knothole Mitts!  These are only my second published crochet pattern, so I am rather fond of them.  They were inspired by a vintage mitten pattern:

I loved the concept of the vintage mittens - turning grannies on point - but didn't love the harlequin color scheme.  I also didn't love the pointed cuffs and the way they didn't grip the wrist.  So, I added triangles to square off the top and bottom edges and turned them into the more modern mitten, i.e. the fingerless glove. And I added a few rows of post stitch ribbing to help them grip the hand and stay in place.

 I am quite happy with how they turned out.  In fact, I have worked up another pair in Rowan's new Angora Haze yarn.  Here's a pic (excuse my lousy photography but it's hard to get a good pic of such fuzzy yarn):
