These cabled fingerless mitts are knit in the round from wrist to fingers with a few inches of flat knitting in between to create the thumb opening.
The twisted rib holds them snugly around your wrist and evolves naturally into a twisted cable pattern that is reminiscent of architectural pillars.
They knit up quickly and will keep you warm on cool spring days or summer evenings without interfering with your knitting and are even short enough over the knuckles to let you show off your favorite rings.
