This project was for my January KAL for One-Skein KAL Group on Ravelry. I hunted down a TON of patterns and I liked this and that of various ones - but really nothing that bit me on the nose in MY size. The biggest problem I had was the size. I have a very small hand. I also wanted to use aran / worsted weight as I've a ton of it in onsie-twosie skein counts. I LOVE cables! Adore them, and I wanted to do cables for these mittens. Well the upshot was, I started several of them, and frogged them all too! So I finally went digging and decided to use a cable pattern in my Vogue Knitting book, and adapted that as the cuff on a basic mitten pattern. These mittens are likely a medium size. For a large size, use size 7 needles and worsted / aran weight yarn that will give you 5 stitches / inch. For small I would suggest (but this is in no way tested) use a size 5 needle on same weight yarn. Now no rock throwing, this is my first knitting pattern, would prefer if you threw yarn or quilt batting :) Have fun with this Grace
