Andiron Mitts feature handsome texture and dimensional cables along the thumb. The center texture is an intuitive knit-purl pattern for a super quick knit that you’ll be able to gift or wear in no time! Choose a lofty yarn for super lightweight warmth, and a solid or semi solid color that allows the texture to shine. These mitts are bound to be a cold weather favorite that you’ll wear (and knit!) again and again.

This pattern assumes knowledge of working in the round, basic cables, increasing, and decreasing. Both charts and written directions are provided for all stitch patterns.
