From pattern:**
These mittens are worked in the round
from the bottom up. The backs of
the mitten are adorned with a unique
cabled motif.

EITHER worsted weight or DK weight
yarn may be used; using worsted weight,
the mittens should fit a ladies’ medium-large
or mens’ small-medium hand, and
using DK weight, the mittens should fit
a ladies’ small hand.

The design for these mittens was originally
commissioned by the Our Back
40 yarn company as the “Cabled City
Mittens” (pattern available only as a kit
with Our Back 40 yarn). The Almy Cabled
Mittens and Cabled City Mittens
patterns differ only in that non-cabled
sections are knitted in the former, and
purled in the latter.

Difficulty: Intermediate: skills included working in
the round on double pointed needles,
reading a chart, cable knitting, decreases,
and picking up stitches.
