Pattern: Cabled Mitts, by Cheryl Beckerich (a free pattern)
Yarn: Alta Moda Cashmere (80% Merino wool, 20% Cashmere). Colorway: 006 (a true navy, and slightly heather)
Needles: US #9 (5.5mm) dpns
Comments: This is a very nice pattern--the cables are in the right place and the thumb is situated perfectly between stitches. And it took less than 1.75 balls of yarn.
Shown with the Burberry Inspired Cowl I recently finished.
I wonder how they can call the yarn "cashmere" when it is mostly wool. However, the yarn is very, very soft and cushy and I liked knitting with it.
Some people wonder what good fingerless mitts are. I like them in our Spring and Fall weather here in Minnesota, but I also like to layer them over another pair of gloves for extra warmth when the weather gets really cold.
