About the Pattern:
These fingerless mittens are knit in the round, from cuff to fingers. The pattern incorporates an intricate yet intuitive cable motif, that resembles branches and roots intertwining with one another. Very little yarn is needed and they can be knit in a single afternoon. When paired with a luxury yarn, they’ll be sure to keep your hands toasty warm and snuggly during chilly months.

Sizing Note:

If you are concerned that the thumb might be too snug, consider casting on an extra 2 or 4 sts, using backwards loop method, after placing gusset sts on scrap yarn. Continue working pattern as established.

Skills Needed:

  • Cables
  • Twisted rib
  • Knitting in the round
