Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on
  • knit and purl
  • decrease by knitting 2 stitches together
  • be able to slip a few stitches onto a separate holder to make the cable
  • bind off
  • optional - be able to do single crochet

Pattern Description:

These mitts were inspired by a vintage pair of "shortie" white gloves I wore to my senior prom!

This pattern is a great introduction to cabling - there's only the one and it's easy. Also, you'll see how easy it is to add a feminine ruffled edge.

The mitts are knit flat, starting at the ruffled cuff with a single cable twist, then sewn up the side leaving a thumbhole with optional crochet edging. There are separate directions for left and right mitts.

My patterns are written in a non-traditional way to be very beginner-friendly. I use few, if any, abbreviations and give instructions in a row-by-row format in easy-to-read large type with a color picture of the finished project.

Kits are available for this project - just add needles!

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family.

Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed!

Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years.

My other favorites are marbling, ...
