Cabled Fingerless Mitts

Two pairs of lovely cabled fingerless mitts!

Pattern: Cabled Fingerless Mitts by Sharon Hoelzle
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish DK in Doe and Marbled Heather
Needle: US 6 – 4.0 mm
Ravelry Link: Brown Pair, Gray Pair

This is a fabulous pattern written by one of the members of the knitting group I go to on Tuesdays. It’s really easy to understand and, as you can see, super easy to modify without screwing up the structure of the mitt.

Cabled Fingerless Mitts #1

Original cable.

My coworker, the fabulous Aubrey, came to work raving about a pair of wool fingerless gloves that her friend had made for her, but expressed a bit of lament over the fact that they were a fuchsia color when she often wears a lot of neutrals. Therefore, when I put in my Xmas order to KnitPicks, I picked up a skein of Swish DK in “Doe” so she would have a nice brown pair of gloves, and picked Sharon’s pattern so she’d have pair that looked different than her fuchsia ones.

Cabled Fingerless Mitts #2

Modified cable.

Well, Aubrey LOVED her mitts, and then slyly hinted that her birthday was coming up, and wouldn’t it be nice if she had a gray pair of gloves? Well, I didn’t want her to have two that looked the same, so I paged through a book Mom got me for Xmas – Interweave’s Cables & Arans – and modified the glove slightly to use the interlocking cable on page 114. Aubrey signs all her online posts with “;) a xo” so I figured the design would be perfect for her.

On both pairs of gloves, I added ribbing at the top until they seemed to be at the right length for Aubrey’s hands, which are smaller than mine. On the second pair of gloves, I switched all the ribbing to k2p2 instead of k3p3 called for in the pattern for no other reason than I wasn’t paying attention. XD
