Short Description: The Cabled Dad Mittens were inspired by my own father's desire for basic, yet classy cold weather gear. The pattern includes instructions to knit three unisex styles: classic mittens, convertible gloves, or fngerless mitts—choose your own adventure! Each style features a super easy cable pattern that coordinates perfectly with my Cabled Dad Hat design, available at knitdarling.com. The project is a quick knit worked with worsted weight yarn, but on smaller needles which produces a dense fabric to keep your hands extra warm. Directions for three sizes are included along with tips for a custom ft.
