Description

The winding cables of these fingerless mitts echo a columella, the central coil of a spiral snail shell. They're knit from the knuckles down with lots and lots (and *lots!*) of cables, for a huge dose of texture and a comfortable, stretchy fit. The cabling is reversed between the left and right mitts for a neat, mirrored look.

This pattern includes two PDFs: a long version with full-color photography, and an alternate "lite" two-page PDF with a compact layout for printing at home.

**Sizes**
XS | M/L | XL to fit a hand 7-8" | 8-9" | 9-10", measured around the palm just above the thumb; Includes instructions for a wrist-length short version and a longer gauntlet length
