MANOS DEL URUGUAY
These stylishly modern (and wonderfully warm) cabled sleeves are worked flat with thumbhole and forearm shaping and expressed outer side seams. The Flore mitts are knitted from the top down, measuring from the middle of the fingers to just below the elbow.
Lengthen and shorten as necessary by adding or eliminating one or more 4-row cable pattern repeats. Slipping the first stitch of every row (slip the first stitch purlwise on RS rows, and slip the first stitch knitwise on WS rows) will make a neater-looking side seam.
