The Urban Aran Mitts are quick and easy to make. The cable that travels on the bias eats away at the seed stitch texture, to reveal simple stockinette stitch. They are designed to fit loosely, so that they can be worn over thin gloves during colder months, or alone during warmer months.

These gloves look best in a solid, heather, or tweed yarn - choose a medium to light colour to show off all the different textures! They are designed to be a bit slouchy, choose the size that best matches your hand, or provides 0.5” / 1.25cm of positive ease.

The right and left mitts use different charts to create a mirrored effect.
