These fingerless gloves feature a decorative lace rib pattern that looks like strings of tiny cables on top of each mitt and a simple ribbing on the palm side for comfort. Cable needles and cable knitting experience is not necessary because the mock cables are actually created with a basic slipped stitch sequence followed by a yarn over in an easy to memorize five row pattern.

The overall ribbed pattern is very stretchy and will accomodate most women’s hands. It can also be easily scaled up by using thicker yarn and needles or by adding a few more stitches in the 2x3 rib.

BonBons belong to the Box of Chocolates collection of patterns along with the Truffle hat and the Nougat neckwarmer:
