Pattern Notes

Mitt is intended to fit snugly around palm. Keep in mind that the fabric is stretchy and can fit a slightly larger wrist and palm. To make it larger, work more increases in row 5, and add plain stitches (not in cable pattern) at beginning and ends of rounds. The wrist band can also be made larger with extra stitches, just make sure that you have an even number.
