Introducing the third pattern of 2016: Oblique Mitts. This subtle diagonal rib is made by shifting stitches over with 1/1 cables. It’s a bit more fun to knit and adds a little sophistication to the standard 2/2 ribbing.
These fingerless mitts knit from the bottom cuff up.
They are knit in the round.
• Knitting in the round
• Cable stitches
Approximate finished measurements: Glove length: 7 in (17.8 cm), Flat width: 2.5 in (6.4 cm) – larger in thumb gusset area. (sample for measurements was blocked and may be larger than unblocked mitts)
Needles: US 6 (4 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: DK weight (can also be knit with worsted weight)
Featured Yarn: Cleckheaton Australian Superfine Merino in Truffle
