Many thanks for the translation, Torunn!


A fingerless mitt pattern showcasing a traveling twisted-stitch wave flanked by reverse stockinette and seed stitch.

Instructions for the cable pattern are charted only.

It is recommended to utilize the “cable without a cable needle” method for quicker results.

Please note: 1 skein of Heilo was enough to make the medium size; however there were only 2 meters of yarn left over. As all knitters are unique, an extra skein is suggested for peace of mind. If you do not end up needing it, make a second pair for a friend or loved one. :-)

The wave cable pattern is a modified version of a cable used for the Am Kamin sweater in the book “New Style of Heirloom Knitting”, by Toshiyuki Shimada.


March 25, 2010: The PDF has finally been updated to include the correction below. :)

Feb. 24, 2009: At the beginning cuff, where it says to “work twisted rib for 1.5 inches (make sure to start with a p st)”—this is for the smaller size only. For the large size, please start the ribbing with a k1tbl st. Thank you, labellementeuse!
