Cascades Cabled Mitts!



I am thrilled to announce that my Cascades Cabled Mitts knitting pattern is finished, test knitted, photographed, and for sale over on Ravelry! Special thanks to those who encouraged me, took pictures, and test knitted. :)

Snug fitting and comfy, my fingerless mitts were inspired by the Douglas Fir forests of the Cascade foothills where I live. While these mitts work up quickly with worsted weight merino wool, the alternating rows of petite cables and 2x1 ribbing knit provide interest for the knitter. The perfect small project for warm summer days or chilly afternoons and evenings, you will enjoy knitting these fingerless mitts for yourself or as a gift.

I'd love to know if you knit a pair...feedback is appreciated!

    1. Tired and, well, you remember! Trying to be patient. She cooked us a delicious dinner last night and wouldn't let me help...maybe today?! Thanks for the kind words, my friend. :)

  4. I agree with you that cables do supply a bit of interest for the knitter but you need not focus on them on every round and so you can look out for the pot on the stove. Your narrow cables are not bulky as in an Aran pullover but elegant. Congratulations on having a pattern published. I've not seen Ravelry yet. I must visit.

    1. Hi Karen! Thanks so much for the sweet comment! It is exciting to finally have a published pattern -- I have several more in the works that I'm eager to finish. I believe you mentioned that you might be willing to test knit. Please leave me a comment if that is the case! The pattern I'm thinking about is a knit baby bonnet.

      Blessings!

    1. Thanks, Lisa, for the encouraging words! I have several patterns I've created over the years and just haven't had the confidence (or time!) to finish writing them and going through the process to publishing. I'm thankful to have several younger gals in our church who have published patterns for Knit Picks and independently, too, who've been immensely helpful. Hope you finish your mitts soon; from the pictures you've shared so far, I can tell they're going to be gorgeous!
      Blessings and happy knitting to you! ~Lisa
