Stitch patterns Twisted ribbing in the round: *k1 through back loop, p1*, repeat *–*. Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all rows.

Gauge 22 sts and 30 rows in stockinette st = 10 cm / 4 in

Note There are five different options for the cable pattern (charts A, B, C, D and E), but otherwise all versions are knitted in the same way.

Left mitten
Cast on 44 sts and divide them onto four needles, 11 sts each. Work twisted ribbing in the round for 3 cm. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV.
Choose a cable pattern (A, B, C, D or E) and work row 1 of the chart: on needles I and II (palm), work twisted ribbing; on needles III and IV, work the 22 st cable pattern. Charts A and E: work rows 2–8, then keep repeating rows 1–8. Chart B: work rows 2–24, then keep repeating rows 1–24. Chart C: work rows 2–6, then keep repeating rows 1–6. Chart D: work rows 2–12, then keep repeating rows 1–12.
When the mitten measures 9 cm, switch to working needles I and II in stockinette st; on needles III and IV, keep working the cable pattern.
Work for 2 rounds. On the next round, begin increases for the thumb gusset on needle II as follows: work to last 4 sts on needle II, increase 1 (knit the strand of yarn between the sts through the back loop), k2, increase 1, k2, work to end. Repeat the increases on every 3rd round 5 more times. 2 sts increased each time. After completing the increases, work 1 round even and then work next round to beginning of gusset. Leave the 14 gusset sts on hold, cast on 2 sts at the gusset, work to end. 44 sts on the needles.
Work stockinette st on needles I and II and cables on needles III and IV until the palm measures approx. 16 cm from the top edge of the ribbing or until the mitten covers the index finger.
Work top decreases as follows: At the beginning of needles I and III, k1, ssk (slip 2 sts knitwise one at a time to right-hand needle, slip both sts back to left-hand needle and knit them together through the back loop); at the end of needles II and IV, k2tog, k1. Repeat the decreases on every round. While decreasing, keep working stockinette st on needles I and II and cables on needles III and IV for as long as you have enough sts.
When 8 sts remain, break yarn and pull it through the sts.
Thumb
Place the 14 thumb sts back onto the needles and pick up 3 additional sts from the base of the thumb to avoid gaps. Divide the 17 sts onto three needles (6 sts, 6 sts, 5 sts). Work stockinette st in the round.
When the thumb measures approx. 5 cm or when the fabric covers half your thumbnail, begin decreases: at the beginning of each needle, k2tog. Repeat the decreases on every round until 8 sts remain. Break yarn and pull it through the sts.

Right mitten
Cast on 44 sts and divide them onto four needles, 11 sts each. Work twisted ribbing in the round for 3 cm. The beginning of round is between needles I and IV.
Choose a cable pattern (A, B, C, D or E) and work row 1 of the chart: on needles I and II, work the 22 st cable pattern; on needles III and IV (palm), work twisted ribbing. Charts A and E: work rows 2–8, then keep repeating rows 1–8. Chart B: work rows 2–24, then keep repeating rows 1–24. Chart C: work rows 2–6, then keep repeating rows 1–6. Chart D: work rows 2–12, then keep repeating rows 1–12.
When the mitten measures 9 cm, switch to working needles III and IV in stockinette st; on needles I and II, keep working the cable pattern.
Work for 2 rounds. On the next round, begin increases for the thumb gusset on needle III as follows: work 2 sts, increase 1, k2, increase 1, work to end.

Leave the 14 gusset sts on hold, cast on 2 sts at the gusset, work to end. 44 sts on the needles.
Work cables on needles I and II and stockinette st on needles III and IV until the palm measures approx. 16 cm from the top edge of the ribbing or until the mitten covers the index finger.
Work top decreases as follows: At the beginning of needles I and III, k1, ssk (slip 2 sts knitwise one at a time to right-hand needle, slip both sts back to left-hand needle and knit them together through the back loop); at the end of needles II and IV, k2tog, k1.
