Pattern Description:

Long wristed chain cable mittens knitting pattern for women, seamless, long or medium wrist length.

These beautiful fingerless gloves are fairly easily knitted for an average skilled knitter.

These mitts feature a chain cable design running along the back side of both hands with a plain palm side.

This pattern is for a sophisticated long wristed length but you can easily make it shorter to obtain a medium wrist length if you prefer.

These cosy wrist warmers are seamless as they are knit in the round.

I love them knitted using soft DK or light worsted 100% merino wool to make them extra soft and warm.

Includes written instructions and video tutorial links to Magic Loop method for knitting small items on circular needles.
