A use-up-the-entire-skein(-if-you-like) pattern.

  • These quick mitts are knitted from the knuckles up to the wrist -- when you have used half of your yarn, stop and start the second mitt.

  • A simple cable pattern runs down the mitt on both sides of the hand

  • Chart for the cables and thumb

  • The sample is knitted on 2 circulars -- dpns or magic loop works fine, too
