These mitts are worked flat, then seamed at the side, leaving a hole for the thumb. The cable pattern makes the skill level “Intermediate,” but the construction is considered to be easy-peasy! This combination is perfect for a Confident Beginner!

The mitt is worked in 2x2 ribbing, with the cable pattern flowing from the ribbing. The ribbing provides for quite a bit of stretch so it will fit a variety of hand sizes. I have given you two size options using fingering weight yarn, but there are other possibilities also! Try working the mitts in either a sport weight or a DK weight yarn to make them a bit thicker, larger, and warmer. You can use the same pattern given here. The stretch of the rib will allow it all to work! The S/M size worked in fingering weight yarn can easily accommodate a hand with a circumference up to 8½“. So if you think that you do not want to work with fingering weight yarn, go ahead and experiment with a heavier weight yarn. I think you will be surprised with the success you will have! Be a Confident Beginner and experiment a bit!
