I designed these mittens last winter, when I couldn’t find a pattern that I liked. While there are lots of cabled handwarmers and fingerless mittens on Ravelry, I was quite surprised by how few mitten patterns there were. Handwarmers aren’t an option in my part of the world, so I came up with these mittens to show off the gorgeous semi-solid blue

These were designed for Magic Loop, but easily translate to 2 circs.

I have added the DPN version of the pattern, but please note that it has not been as extensively test knit as the Magic Loop version. As always, feedback is welcomed!

7 May 2011: The chart for the DPN version has been updated to remove a stray cable. Please ensure you have the file marked DPN-2.

8 November 2011: The DPN version incorrectly lists the ribbing as k1p1 when it ought to be k2p2. Updated PDF to follow.

7 February 2013: Line 5 of the DPN chart is incorrect. Please refer to the chart from the Magic Loop version until I am able to update the file.
