Brrr. Make these cable fingerless mitts your besties as the weather turns chilly.
The alpaca-mix yarn from Rowan gives a soft and snug finish. This knitting pattern is ideal for knitters who have used cables before, using a cute combo of forward and backward cables to create an 'XOXO' effect along the back of the mitts.
Perfect for some knitty compliments all around as you dash into town for the essential weekly shop, or popping to get your takeaway coffee.
These are knitted flat, and seamed once you've finished. The seams aren't noticeable when wearing, and you'll find it easier to keep track through the pattern knowing that one row is purl-based and the next knit-based.
