I love fingerless mitts for their versatility in cooler weather, especially when they’re beautiful as well as functional! The Lisanne Mitts feature a bold cable motif, cabled ribbing on the palms for additional stretch, and an elegant thumb gusset. In The Plucky Knitter’s luxurious Primo Sport, you’ll never want to take them off. Most of the cables can be easily worked without a cable needle, and the mitts can be combined with any of the other pieces in The Virescent Collection to create a matching set.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions. You will receive three separate files -- one for each size.

Recommended Yarn:
The Plucky Knitter Primo Sport, one skein — 75% extra fine Italian superwash merino / 20% cashmere / 5% nylon — 275 yds (251 m) to 100 g. Shown in colorway Gin Rummy.

Yardage Requirements by Size:
S = approx. 185 yds (169 m)
M = approx. 200 yds (183 m)
L = approx. 215 yds (197 m)

All mitts are 9” (23 cm) in total length. Cabled ribbing on the palms gives extra stretch.

S = to fit palm 7” (18 cm) around
M = to fit palm 7.5” (19 cm) around
L = to fit palm 8” (20.5 cm) around

20 sts and 20 rows to 2”, unstretched in pattern, centered over large motif, washed and blocked. (Gauge may seem tight, but remember that cables do pull in fabric significantly.)

US 3 (3.25 mm) and US 2.5 (3 mm) needles, for preferred method of working in the round. (The smaller needle is used to work the final ribbing around the fingers, for extra snugness. I used two circulars to knit my mitts.)

PLEASE NOTE: I knit very tightly. I actually used a US 4 (3.5 mm) needle to achieve this gauge in the body of my mitts, but knitters who are typically “on gauge” will likely wish to use a US 3 (3.25 mm) needle. Very loose knitters will likely wish to use a US 2.5 (3 mm) needle. Final ribbing is worked in needle one size smaller. Changes in gauge will affect finished size and amount of yarn used.

Other Materials:
Four optional stitch markers (one to indicate beg. of round, one to mark slipped st, two to delineate thumb gusset — thin markers recommended), cable needle in appropriate size, tapestry needle.

Skills Needed:
Knitting in the round, cabling, ribbing, working thumb gussets, m1R and m1L increases
