Free pattern: furry fingerless mittens

Hi everyone! Today's pattern is for advanced beginners.

Have you noticed that these fingerless mittens are very furry? Of course you have! I used a quite advanced stitch called loop stitch(loopy stitch or fur stitch)

If you have never knitted a loop stitch of your life, I suggest you to learn it before making the glove. Cast on as many stitches as you want and follow the instructions on Special stitch below.

MATERIALS:
_ 4mm needles
_ Light weight Yarn
You are free to choose any color you like but here are few suggestions: brown, white, grey

ABBREVIATIONS:
_ k: knit
_ st(s): stitch(es)
_ WS: wrong side

SPECIAL STITCH: Loop or fur stitch
Row1: k
Row2: loop
Loop:
knit but do not drop st off the needle.
Bring yarn to front, between needles and loop it over your thumb, then bring it between the needles again.
Knit the stitch again -> you have 2sts on the right needle
Pass the 1st st over the 2nd and off to secure the loop.

INSTITUTIONS: ( for averaged women's hands)

Right hand:
Cast on 44sts
Rib 2x2: (k2, p2) for 5cm
Row 1: k22, loop21, k1
Row 2: k22, p22
Repeat row 1 and 2 until piece measures 14cm
Then rib 2x2 again for 1cm
Bind off
Sew down from bind off edge for 4cm
Sew up from cast on edge for 6 cm

Rib 2x2: (k2, p2) for 5cm

Row 2: p22, k22
