Fingerless mitts are also in style (or at least, have been recently…). I hope my “tween” niece will like these, to go with her slouchy hat.

These were very, very quick to knit! I spent about 10 hours total on them (with interruptions!).
Irish Hiking Mitts by Karin Michele
My niece isn’t Irish, nor does she hike. But these are just so cute! And I think they go very well with her cabled hat.
I only made one modification to the pattern. I crossed the cables in the opposite direction on the right-hand mitt to make them symmetrical. It was only a matter of holding the cable needle to the front instead of the back, to get a left-crossed cable.
