Product details

The Beeswax mitts are a pair of cosy, cabled hand-warmers, completing the set of Beeswax hat, cowl, and mitts. They all feature the same double-layered honeycomb pattern, flowing naturally into and out of the ribbing. The stretchy stitch patterns help ensure a good fit, and the shaping around the thumbs blends into the surrounding honeycomb.

The honeycomb texture is made up of simple mini-cables, which can be knit without a cable needle. I’ve included instructions for my favourite twist method, which I find intuitive and easy to remember, but you can use any method you prefer.

Materials: 140 yards of DK or worsted-weight yarn. I used Vintage Purls Max, a heavy-DK-weight merino/nylon sock yarn. If substituting yarn, choose a bouncy merino or other woollen-spun yarn with lots of ‘body’, so the cables are plump and well-defined.

To fit women’s medium (7.5” palm circumference), but stretchy enough to accommodate 7-8” hands.
Both charted and written instructions are included.
