Wanna Hold Your Hands

Wanna Hold Your Hands mittens Unisex mitts with honeycomb cables and broken/seed stitch ribbing.

Companion mitts to the I Love You Dad socks, these fingerless mitts are a great quick project to learn how to cable without a cable needle.

There’s enough going on to keep you interested, but the pattern is actually easily memorized and quick to knit.

They make a lovely gift and, though designed with my male relatives in mind, they are certainly unisex.

Finished size: The pattern is very stretchy, and fits women’s med/lg to men’s med/lg.
