Palomino Mittens

Kick your winter knitting up a notch with these cabled mittens. Dense and warm, these woolly mitts will be a welcome upgrade from the drugstore acrylic gloves your friend is used to.

Find the pattern in November Knits. If you missed our book signing earlier this month, we’ve got copies available in the store. Knit it in three skeins of The Fiber Company Organik for luxurious softness and warmth.

From the pattern author:

Perfect for keeping fingers toasty while raking leaves or doing other autumnal chores, these mittens are knitted from a lovely, yet basic, worsted-weight wool. The texture-rich design features a meandering pattern of traveling twisted stitches and cables that show the yarn to its best advantage. A slightly denser-than recommended gauge ensures durability and warmth while small details, such as the purled thumb and ribs that extend into the cables, create a refined look to the rustic hand-wearing yarn.
