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.
