Knit Pattern: Scallop Cable Mitts


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.

Pattern Notes:

These fingerless mitts knit from the bottom cuff up and are knit in the round.

Special skills:
• Knitting in the round
• Increase
• Cable stitches

Size: Adult
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.

Yarn: Light Worsted Weight or DK, approx 115 yds (100 m)
Featured Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh DK in Weathered Frame
