About the pattern
Quick to work up in gloriously soft, squishy Whitfell DK, these fingerless mitts are ideal for a gift or as a treat for yourself. The bold, yet simple to knit cable runs up the back of the hand and the ribbed palm ensures a good fit with plenty of stretch. The pattern is available in three sizes and two lengths giving added versatility to this fantastic knit.
