(Pattern redesigned to have thumb gusset January 2016)
Cabled twists give these rustic looking fingerless mitts a deeply three-dimensional wave texture, which give exceptional warmth to hands & wrists. Create in soft luxury worsted-weight, or for alternate sizes use DK and Sport-weight yarns. Knit in-the-round & bottom-up. True right & left hands with stockinette stitch for palm, gusseted thumb, and length options. Great one-skein project & a fun & fast weekend knit!
Mitts pair well with Altitude Twists Cowl.
