Katri Cable Mittens – Free Crochet Pattern

The Katri Cable Mittens are the perfect winter accessory! The braided cables add character and interest while giving the mittens a classic look. These mittens will elevate any outfit while keeping your hands warm.

I am beyond excited to introduce you to the Katri Cable Mittens!! Crocheting mittens have been on my ‘to make list’ for quite some time and I am thrilled that I finally got around to making them!

It has also been a long time since I have crocheted cables, so I thought cables would be perfect for these mittens! This is my first time using the braided cable and I must say, I am officially obsessed!!

I avoided the braided cable for so long because I was really intimidated by it, it seemed so much more complicated than regular cables. But they were surprisingly very easy to learn.

If this is your first time crocheting braided cables (or any cable for that matter!!!), I got you! I have tons of pictures to help you!!!
