Inglis Mitts

Cabled fingerless mitts
Long mitts make the chilliest days okay. Starting at the bottom and working up by way of a glorious cable, the ribbing continues at the top to form a foldover cuff. Instead of a traditional thumb gusset increases are worked in a single column on the palm, creating an elegant curve and allowing the cable pattern to flow smoothly from cuff to thumb.
