The Tidal Wave Mitts begin with ribbing for a stretchy fit. Loose rolling cables alternate to transform ribbing into WOW. The cables are mirrored, so each hand features a cable that twists toward the thumb. Bulky yarn and big needles make this quick knit a breeze!

Ribbing is very stretchy, which means a good fit for many hands! Stretching fabric wider will make it shorter, though, so you may want to adjust circumference by changing needle size. I was happy with the fabric on a US 8, US 9, and US10 needle.

Thank you to tech editor Meaghan Schmaltz, and test knitters Ann Berg, Michelle Corcoran, Denise DelaGarza, Katherine Ellison, Marion Fetters, Jacqueline Lydston, Elaine Replogle, Susan Schwartzenberger, Lisa Schwarz, and Nan Wagner.
