Find that stashed variegated yarn and get ready to knit!

This is a pattern for a pair of knitted mitts with moss stitch and cable motif, worked in the round from the bottom cuff up. This pattern can be easily changed by working with smaller or larger needles in sport to DK weight yarn.
small mistake- Please note, there is an explanation for m1pwise, but there are none in the pattern.

Someone asked me about the listed size vs hand circumference and I thought, pictures tell more- There are 3 photos, of the same beige glove
1) 6.5 inch/16 cm
2) 7 inch/18 cm
3) 9 inch/23 cm
circ knuckle measure (the bottom 3 photos).
As you can see, these mitts are super stretchy and fit a bunch of hands!
Happy Knitting!
