The convertible Cable Mittens are basically just what they sound like, a set of densely knit mittens done in Aran-weight yarn, designed to stand up to a Canadian winter, but also leave the fingers free for texting, using car keys, or all those other fiddly tasks that are near-impossible in standard mittens!
For questions and support, please e-mail me at sarahdawnsdesigns [!at] gmail.com.

The mitts are knit from the cuff to the tip, with the mitten flap picked up across the back of the hand. The slipped-stitch palm helps provide warmth, traction, and durability to the mitten; while the cables up the back provide a dash of style to a functional and durable mitten.
The Cable pattern is both written and charted; this pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software which includes the written instruction.Errata Link
