MYOG: Ultralight Rain Mitts

When hiking with poles trough the rain it’s better to protect your

hands from hypothermia. I wear thin fleece gloves and rain mitts additionally.

I found this pattern originating from the middle ages while searching for something with practically no seams.  Because less seams = less possibilities for water to enter (and *bonus* shorter sewing time).

You need:

1  x 65x29cm of water resistant and light material, I took Ripstop-Nylon 65g/m
2 x 18cm thick elastic edge binding (red)
2 x 19cm thick elastic edge binding (red)
1 x seam seal

(my hands: 19 cm length and 22 cm circumference including thumb)

weight: 16g/pair (0,56 oz)

On my first pattern – as you can see on the photos – the thumb is rather tight (5cm), so I changed the pattern for a larger one (6,5 cm).
