Winter is beginning to make itself known here in central Ohio. Whether we’re busy baking pies or watching a football game, we can’t help but notice a certain chill in the air. What better way to keep our hands warm on a cool day raking leaves, or while heading to our favorite cafe in the city, than by wearing these lovely and oh-so-soft fingerless mitts?

These fingerless mitts are meant to be long enough to make sure your wrist isn’t exposed to the cold. Also, with the seed stitch border at the beginning and end of each mitt, they can easily be rolled back or unrolled to make the mitt longer or shorter as needed.

Sporting a beautiful cable down the center and made with alpaca yarn, you’ll be looking for excuses to wear them!

Skill level: Beginning to Intermediate - knitter will need to know how to cast on using a long-tail method, bind off, work cables, and work in the round using double-pointed needles.

Errata: Cable pattern shows Row 5 then Row 5 again. The 2nd 5 should be a 6, but the two rows are the same anyway. Will fix pattern in Rav once I get back to the computer on which this is originally saved. Thanks and happy knitting!
