A Celtic knot cable travels along the back of these sport weight fingerless mitts in three sizes S(M/L) and two lengths. But don’t be fooled by the visual complexity—composed entirely of simple, repetitious cable crossings, the pattern is easy to keep track of and execute. The tailored thumb gusset provides a snug fit that stays in place, while the cabled cuff can be lengthened or shortened to suit one’s taste. The palm side is worked in stockinette stitch. Instructions are easily adjusted to be worked on two circular needles if desired..
