These warm winter mittens in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) are worked with a single cable detail to showcase a rustic, earthy yarn. Since they knit up super fast on larger needles, they are a good vehicle for chunky handspun or slubby yarns, special fibers, or learning to cable. They feature a fitted gusset and top shaping.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
