Well Rooted Mitts Pattern
The cables on these Well Rooted Mitts remind me of the forests found in many fantasy novels, with ancient, gnarled trees and creatures hiding in the shadows.
Knitted in the round, construction includes thumb gussets and 2x2 ribs. Instructions for left and right mitts are identical; with careful placement of cables to avoid a pattern jog at the beginning of the round.
