I’d like to introduce the second pattern in my new fingerless mitts series: Scallop Cable Mitts. These are the most heavily cabled gloves I’ve made to date. I was pleased with how the cables meander from the center to the outside of the cable. I’ve knit these with a few different types of yarn, but I love the simplicity of a beautiful hand-dyed yarn that allows both the texture of the pattern and the beautiful subtle variation of color to shine.
These fingerless mitts knit from the bottom cuff up and are knit in the round.
• Knitting in the round
• Cable stitches
Approximate finished measurements: Glove length: 7.5 in (19 cm), Flat width: 3 in (7.6 cm) – larger in thumb gusset area. (sample for measurements was blocked and may be larger than unblocked mitts)
Needles: US 5 (3.75 mm) double pointed needles – set of 4 recommended. Cable needle.
(You may find it is easy enough to switch sts on needles without a cable needle as all cables are 1/1 stitch.)
Stitch marker and stitch counter optional.

Featured Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Weathered Frame
