Have you already tried knitting the mint long fingerless gloves? Many of you found it useful during cold and busy days when you need to take a long drive, grab something or simply feel comfortable doing your daily activities. Not to mention that fingerless gloves is a wonderful accessory that makes each woman look elegant and sophisticated.

Start decreasing rounds.

Knitting right long cable mitten

The main idea of the knitting right mitten is the same. I will only point the rounds with some distinctions.

Round 7:  p1, k6, C6B, p1, k20.

Round 13: p1, C6F, k6, p1, k20. Continue alternating C6B and C6F to get symmetrically viewed mittens.

Round 25: p1, C6F, k6, p1, k4, yoR, k16. Continue all other rounds with yoR.

I think I have got obsessed with cable gloves and mittens so stay tuned for my next Snow Queen Cable Mittens.
