These cable and rib mittens in three sizes (S/M/L) have plenty of texture to stand up to a colorful speckled yarn but also bring a solid or heathered yarn to life with deep texture elements. Worked in the round from the cuff up with a fitted gusset, they are a quick, unisex project perfect for gifting. A soft yarn will offer maximum stretch and flexibility, while a springy or tight twist yarn will yield sharp stitch definition and good recovery.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, elasticity, and yardage requirement.
