This is a downloadable pattern of the Bessie May Nettle Cable Mitts/Wrist Warmers
These are created in one size, which fits all, due to the deep soft cables, that increase and decrease to gently change size to fit the shape of your hand. Knitted flat, and stitched together with mattress stitch, leaving a hole for each thumb. Easy to also wear as wrist warmers, by just removing the thumb and pushing up the arm, so no need to keep taking on and off when out and about.
These are an intermediate knit, good for those who have experience of cabling, but would also be a great project for someone wanting to expand their cabling knowledge and skill, as a small project that allows experience of increasing and decreasing while working in cable.
The end result are beautiful, deep and soft mitts, that are stylish and practical, and are great for gifting.
This is an intermediate pattern, as requires increasing and decreasing in cables, although would be a great small project for someone wanting to build their cabling skills, as would result in a lovely pair of mitts, as well as greater cabling experience.
Yarn: two 50g balls of Bessie May Nettle, 70% Organic Wool, and 30% Nettle Fibre.Could also be worked in stripes creating cables that are even more emphasised, so two balls in different colours could be fun.
Needles: one pair of 5mm knitting needles, and 1 cable needle
Enjoy making / and wearing…
