The archery mitts are a pair of cozy and warm fingerless mitts, designed to keep you warm while not being too bulky or long. They are great for wearing while working with your hands! (for example: crafting, writing, typing, or shooting a bow and arrow)

NOTE: these mitts are NOT seamless. They are knit flat and then seamed at the end.

SKILL LEVEL: beginner/intermediate.
Pattern includes basic cable work. This is a great option for someone who has never worked a cable before, as it’s quite a simple one. Aside from that you will need to know how to both knit and purl, and be prepared to count your stitches and rows!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: This pattern includes instructions for both the long and short archery mitts.
Long mitts measure 20cm x 20cm
Short mitts measure 12cm x 20cm

aran or chunky yarn (50g for short, 75g for long)
size 5mm straight knitting needles
cable needle
a tapestry needle for seaming and weaving in ends
