This classic cable pattern, consisting of two beginner cable techniques, these are light and cosy mitts that you’ll appreciate from September to April.
Ideal for those who love natural fibres, these mitts knitted in Rowan’s Felted Tweed DK will keep your hands away from the light breezes of Autumn and Spring along with being enough to protect you as you rush from house to car, from coffee shop to office in the coldest winter.
These are knitted flat, and seamed once you’ve finished. The seams aren’t noticeable when wearing, and you’ll find it easier to keep track through the pattern knowing that one row is purl-based and the next knit-based.
Size of finished cuffs:
22cm (8.75″) high, 20cm (8″) around the wrist/cuff (with ribbing there’s a lot of stretch)
