Cabled Mitts

A beautiful V-shaped cable accents these fingerless gloves—stitched in alpaca yarn, they’re pure bliss. Make them for someone special on your list.
By Brenda K. B. Anderson

STITCH NATION Alpaca Love, 3oz/85g balls, each approx 132yd/121m (wool/ alpaca)
• 1 or 2 balls #3240 Orchid
Note Pictured mitts required 1 ball of yarn, with less than 4yd/3.5m remaining. We recommend purchasing 2 balls of yarn to ensure enough yarn for a gauge swatch and mitts, without need to unravel the gauge swatch.

• Size G/6 (4 mm) crochet hook or any size to obtain correct gauge

• Yarn needle

Mitts measure approx 7½"/19cm long, 8½"/21.5cm circumference at finger edge, and 7¼"/18.5cm circumference at wrist edge.
Note Mitts will fit most women and teens.

16 sts and 18 rows = 4"/10cm over single crochet worked in back loops only.
Remember to check gauge for best results!
