Knitting pattern for Elvira mittens with cable pattern
We have designed these pretty mittens with beautiful cables. We have worked the mittens in our own sustainable merino wool; Önling No 2. We have been inspired by the beautiful techniques of the Aran sweaters and have made 2 patterns with cable twists. One has a nice cable with several different sizes of cables, and the other is a 'fake twist', which is knitted without a needle. The mittens can be knitted in many variants and is the perfect gift.

Finally, the thumb stitches are picked up again, and the thumb is worked.
