These mitts are the ultimate in instant gratification knitting. No messing around with scrap yarn or cable needles – just straightforward knitting from cast on to cast off. The mock cables are easy to work, and a photo tutorial is included.

They have an intentionally short hand and thumb to make them easy to wear, and a tight gauge gives great stitch definition and durability. These are the ideal typing mitts for a chilly office! Plus, they only take a little bit of yarn - great for sock yarn leftovers.

The pattern includes 4 sizes to fit a unisex range of hands.

Required yarn
Less than 50g of fingering (4ply) weight yarn for any size. Choose a yarn with a good stitch definition to make the mock cables pop.
