The Design Concept Behind The Woodsy Mitts Knitting Pattern: Cable-Knit Coziness
I don't think many things are cuter than a classic pair of cable-knit mittens in the fall or winter, so I knew months ago I wanted to design The Woodsy Mitts knitting pattern. I've been knitting and designing cable-knit mittens for many years (e.g., The Cappuccino Mitts have been my customers' go-to fave autumn knitting pattern for awhile), and I just can't get enough of them! I wanted these mitts to have a classic no-fuss design, so I purposely designed them to not have any ribbing or cuff details, but instead to immediately start the cable-work. The front body of the mittens feature a really large center cable that covers the entire front of the mitten, making it so special and stunning. The rest of the mitten is knitted with only classic, clean-looking knit stitches, to make for a timeless, classic accessory. If you're looking for a fun and easy knitting pattern to make the cutest pair of cable-knit mittens, then The Woodsy Mitts knitting pattern is definitely for you!
The specific inspiration for The Woodsy Mitts knitting pattern stemmed from my need for warm winter accessories since I'm constantly hiking the Rocky Mountains. I'm always on the lookout for functional and stylish fall and winter accessories, since the climate when hiking at altitude can be rather brutal. So The Woodsy Mitts check all my boxes for cute, functional, and warm!
