Get the elegant and intricate look of cables without the work! If you can knit in the round, increase, decrease, knit, and purl, you can make these mitts. With a gusset thumb, they come off the needles ready to wear.

The garter stitch rib has a lot of give, so don’t worry too much about the gauge. If you’re in the ballpark with the needle size and a worsted weight yarn, these should fit.

Includes both written and charted instructions.
