f you’re new to cabling these mitts are a great way to start adding your new-found skills to more items. Without having to worry about adding a thumb you’ll find this a great step towards your next cabling project.

(and all your friends will want a pair once you’re showing off your finish mitts!)

If you’re an experienced knitter you can have these ready to wear in a couple of evenings (if that!) and if you’re new to cabling, the thicker weight yarn is a perfect way to actually see the cable as you go.

Who is this for?
This pattern is ideal for you if you’re new to cable knitting, they are a good learning tool for following shaping and cable pattern simultaneously. You will only use the beginner terms that first-timers use in cabling.
If you’d like step-by-step videos as you knit along with these mitts, you’ll find them in the Crafty Cables course, available on my website, or in the Knit With Hannah membership.
You’ll be knitting these flat and sewing a side seam, so don’t panic if you’re worried about cabling and knitting in the round.

Why do you need it?
Adding shaping to your cabling skills is perfect for then attempting larger cabled items. (and who wouldn’t want these mitts anyway?!)

To knit these you’ll need:
Pairs of single pointed knitting needles, sizes 5.5mm & 6.5mm.

100g chunky yarn

Also needed are a pair of scissors, measuring tape and knitter’s sewing needle or tapestry needle.
