Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increase/Decrease
  • Cables
  • Work in the Round

Pattern Description:

These pretty fingerless mitts use an unusual zigzag rib combined with a single cable on the top of the hand. The palm is decorated with 2 sets of zigzag stitches with a stockinette stitch background.

They use less than half a 100 gm skein, so treat yourself (or someone special) to something beautiful and practical.

Here's a quote from one of the test-knitters: "Really cute mitts and I love the new stitch I learned, the zig-zag ribbing. Haven't had as much fun doing a process for years! It is downright FUN! Not to mention amazing - in looks AND in stretchiness."


32 sts = 4 in/10cm

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • S/M and M/L ; Approx 5.5 (6.5) in/14 (16.5) cm, unstretched and 8 (9) in/20 (22.5) cm stretched, around palm of hand; 8 in/20 cm from top edge to hem. The rib pattern is quite stretchy, so the mitts will fit most hands.


  • Fingering weight yarn, 155-185 yds (142-169 m)

You Will Also Need:

  • size 2 (US) 2.75 DPNs or 2 circulars
  • Stitch markers

Suggested yarn:

155 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Unwind Yarn Company Luxe Sock
