Pattern by Michele Rose Orne
A panel of sinuous cables winds its way down the top sides of these fingerless mitts, while a no-nonsense rib helps to keep the underside snug. Reminiscent of a vine tracing its way up to a garden trellis, the placed cables are fun and slightly challenging to work. With only a thumb gusset for shaping, these mitts are fairly simple, with just enough stitch detail to keep them interesting - the perfectly portable project. Wear them while enjoying a cup of tea on a chilly fall afternoon.
