Keep your fingers free and your hands warm with these delicate and very pretty fingerless mitts with an offset cable.

The ribbed pattern allows for a one size fits all. The M/L version is a longer mitt.

YARN REQUIREMENTS: the small or shorter version of the pattern can easily be knit up with one 50g (1.7oz)skein , the longer version you are best to make sure you have two 50g skeins or a 100g (3.5ozs)

Pattern can also be knit in smaller needles to allow for tiny hands.

Rust mitts were knit in Aslan Trends King Baby Llama & Mulberry Silk (I found this to be a very light worsted)

Beige Mitts were knit in Peer Gynt by Sandnes Gurns ( needed 2 balls for longer mitt)

Grey mitts were knit in Vintage

Test knitters also Used Vintage DK, Cashmere Queen, Naturally’s Loyal DK,
