In the interest of stash busting, I’m working up these cabled mittens for my 8 year old daughter. This is some of the leftover sweater yarn that was also used in the Noro Chevron scarf. It’s a blend of wool, cashmere and acrylic- so hopefully they will be warm mittens.
Cables require extra stitches per inch which made for an interesting decrease scenario at the end of the mitten to get stitch counts even on the front and the back. It took a few tries to get the mitten to look good but I think it was worth the effort.
Thanks to the purchase of a crazy Xbox worm game that I was enticed to play with my kids, the second mitten is still sitting half-knitted. Perhaps tomorrow I will finish it.
At least KitKat is enjoying the one completed mitten. 🙂

I like these mittens very much. I have been making them too but on my chunky knitting machine.
