Hibernia Mittens are knit in the round from the cuff up. An all-over cable pattern that runs on both sides of the mittens makes them extra squishy and warm. The mittens feature a gusseted, reverse-stockinette thumb that grows organically between the cables. These ornate mittens come in two sizes and make for excellent gifts for both men and women alike.
This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for all cable patterns.
