The Anticline mitts are a stylish, modern set of cuffed fingerless gloves featuring a striking pattern of twisted ribbing and diagonal cables that wrap elegantly around the wrist and hand. The cozy ribbed cuffs are designed to be worn turned back for the convenience of fingerless gloves, but can also be unfolded for extra warmth on the chilliest days. These mitts work up beautifully in both solid and tonal hand-dyed yarns, making them perfect for that skein of sock yarn in your stash that’s just too gorgeous to wear on your feet.
Sample mitts are knit in Magpie Fibers' Swanky Sock yarn. You may substitute your favorite fingering-weight or sock yarn. Size S/M (to fit 6.5"-7.5" palm circumference) requires approximately 217 yards, size M/L (to fit 7.5"-8.5" palm circumference) requires approximately 256 yards.
Instructions for cabled stitch patterns are provided in both charted and written form.
