Free pattern: Blue King Cabled Mitts

Blue King Cabled Mitts

Fingerless mittens with an easy cabled part for embellishment and extra good fit. A fun, easy and fast knit to warm your hands, or the hands of a loved one. An opportunity to use that delicious soft thin alpaca yarn or perhaps some of your sock yarn.

cabled wrist warmers


Materials:

Use a fingering weight sock yarn or alpaca.

I have used

1. pair: Inca Alpakka, 100% superfine alpaca, 175 m (191 yards) pr. 50 g (1.76 ounce). Amount used: 25 g (~100 yards)

2. pair: Silja Sock yarn, 80% wool, 20% nylon, 150 m (164 yards) pr. 50 g (1.76 ounce). Amount used: 35 g (~115 yards)

Needles: dpns or magic loop 3.5 mm (US 4). Cable needle (cn).

Stitch marker.

Gauge: 16 sts = 5 cm (2 inches) in 2x2 rib

Skill level: Intermediate

Note: This will make a womans small/medium size. It is very stretchy due to the ribbing, but you could use a bigger/smaller needle size, thicker/thinner yarn or adjust the stitch count to get a different size. Length of finished mitt: 18-19 cm (about 7 inches).

The pattern calls for knitting in the round but could easily be knitted flat.


Left Mitten:

Cast on 48 sts.

If you are using dpns divide into 3 needles: 24 sts (back), 12 sts + 12 sts (palm). Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round.

Knit * p2, k2 * rib for 20 rounds.

Start knitting the pattern for the back of your hand (24 sts), continue with rib for the palm (12 + 12 sts).

Row 16: When you have knitted round 15 of the pattern, make an opening for the thumb by turning your work and knit back and fort. Make sure that you have the thumb opening on the right side of your mitten.

Continue with the cable pattern on the right side (RS), replace knits with purls and purls with knits on the wrong side.

Complete the pattern.

Continue in * p2, k2 * rib for 5 more rows, ending with a RS row. Reattach and start knitting in the round again.

Knit * p2, k2 * rib for 10 rounds.

Cast off loosely.


Right Mitten:

Cast on 48 sts.

If you are using dpns divide into 3 needles: 12 sts + 12 sts (palm), 24 sts (back). Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round.

Knit * k2, p2 * rib for 20 rounds.

Continue with rib for the palm of your hand (12 + 12 sts). Start knitting the pattern for the back of your hand (24 sts).

Note: Skip the first two purl sts in the pattern (every round), and add two purl sts at the end of the pattern, to make symmetry with the left mitten.

Row 16: When you have knitted round 15 of the pattern, make an opening for the thumb by turning your work and knit back and fort. Make sure that you have the thumb opening on the left side of your mitten.

Continue with the cable pattern on the right side (RS), replace knits with purls and purls with knits on the wrong side.

Complete the pattern.

Continue in * k2, p2 * rib for 5 more rows, ending with a RS row. Reattach and start knitting in the round again.

Knit * k2, p2 * rib for 10 rounds.

Cast off loosely.


Finishing: Weave in all ends.
