This is a revamping of my first ever design, published in 2009. I learned a lot in the 5 years since then, so I put all that knowledge to use when updating this pattern.

Cascading Cables, so named because the cables on the back of the hand spread out the closer they get to the fingers, is a pattern for either mittens or fingerless mitts. The cables are mirrored on the left and right hands. A thumb gusset and ribbing on the arm mean that the fit is great! One size, to fit most adult lady hands. The mittens are about 12 inches long from cast on edge to mitten top.

Use any worsted weight yarn you like. The mitts require about 150 yards, and the mittens, about 180. Your mileage may vary.
