These fingerless mitts are knit in the round and feature alternate slanting cables for each hand to give the mitts a balanced look. Knit the cuff/arm to the length you want before beginning the thumb gusset.

Size to fit the average medium sized woman’s hand, approximately 21cm/8” at widest point excluding thumb.

Measurement of pictured mitts is approx. 19cm/7½” long.

Sizing can be easily adjusted for fit by using 2.25mm/US 1 needles for smaller or 2.75mm/US 2 needles for larger hands.

Yardage given accommodates the size shown up to a longer length that covers half your forearm.

Use whatever fingering weight (4 ply) yarn you fancy to knit these mitts! For luxury, why not try a squishy cashmere, possum or alpaca yarn to add additional warmth!
