These cabled fingerless mitts give you two size options; making this a great unisex pattern for a man or a woman.

The main twisted cable stitch pattern reminds me of trees and roots; a stretchy pattern that is fun & easy to work.

The mitts are worked in the round from the cuff up to the hand for minimal finishing.

Knit up a quick pair for yourself or as a great gift to make use of your favorite worsted weight wool!

Pattern Notes

  • Mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up; directions for cable pattern are both written and charted. The thumb is picked up and worked separately at the end.
  • Both ribbing and cable patterns are quite stretchy – when you achieve stockinette gauge, you should use that needle size for the main portion of the mitt and go down two needle sizes for the ribbing.
  • Changes for stitch counts/directions for men’s mitts are marked in parentheses when necessary.
