Cable patterns are great for keeping your hands warm in Scottish weather! They create a thick, dense fabric to protect you from the cold, and make your hands feel warm and cosy. The cable patterns of these mittens are inspired by traditional Scottish knitting, and by the patterns carved on stone crosses and cross slabs in Iona and all over Scotland.
The cuff is worked sideways, then the body is knitted bottom up.
Please note that the pattern is charted only.
How about making an Iona Cowl and an Iona Hat to to go with your mittens? All three patterns are also available together in the Iona Collection.
