After winding up my new ball of Alegria Grande I decided that the yarn wanted to be mittens. Being me, I had to design some new ones instead of knit one of the 84523578 mitten patterns already out there. I found a cable pattern I loved in one of my beloved stitch dictionaries and here we are. Aleyska mittens.
They're written for three sizes- adult small, medium, and large. The small fits my hands perfectly and my palm is 7.25" around above my thumb. I know we've been over this before, but I love knitting worsted weight mittens. They are so fast.
I'd recommend doing magic loop if you're going to knit these. You don't want to be working the cable pattern between double points- what a mess.
Want to make a pair? You can get the pattern on Ravelry for $5. BUT WAIT! Until September 21st you can use coupon code FALLYALL to get them for 40% off. It was fall-ish outside the other day. Football is back. Fall is here as far as I'm concerned, even if the high is 90 F today.
