Double Cable Mittens
These fingerless gloves are fairly easily knitted and feature a beautiful double cable design running along the back side of both hands with a plain palm side. This pattern is for a classic look standard size length pair of mittens but you can easily add an extra repeat of the cable pattern on the wrist for a longer mitt.
One size fits most women with wrist circumference of between 15cm (6in) and 18cm (7in).
Total length for standard wrist glove: 21cm (8.25in).
Additional cable pattern repeat will bring length to 24.5cm (9.5in).
Knitting in the round (magic loop or using double-pointed needles);
