These mittens feature an unusual cable pattern that decorates the back of the hand. The mittens are crocheted entirely in slip stitches, using the back loop only slip stitch. The cable pattern is symmetical for the left hand and the right hand. The cable is worked horizontally - a technique that I invented.
The pattern includes written instructions and step-by-step picture tutorials for
- the back loop only slip stitch
- horizontal cables (with lots of pictures on how to make four-stranded cables)
- an invisible seam.
skills: The pattern is self-contained. All stitches and techniques you need to know to crochet the mittens are explained with step-by-step picture tutorials. Still, it helps if you practice both slip stitch crochet, the cabling and the invisible seam before you start with the mittens.
The pattern is available in English and German.
