The Staghorn Cable Mitts Knitting Pattern has been inspired by the grey gloves Claire is seen wearing in Outlander season 1 (in episode 8 'Both Sides Now').

This pattern will allow you to create fingerless mittens with the intricate staghorn cable design.

The main mitt is knit flat and the thumb section is then knit in the round.

Yarn needed

DK/Light Worsted/8ply.


  • 4 mm (US 6) Knitting needles.
  • 4.5mm (US 7) Knitting needles.

I used my interchangeable circular needles on a 40cm/16″ cable.


Level - Intermediate

This is an intermediate-level knitting pattern and the techniques involved are the knit stitch, purl stitch, ribbing, cable stitches, knitting in the round, short row shaping, casting on, and casting off.

Seaming - the main mittens are seamed and there is a tutorial link in the pattern to help you.

The thumb is knit in the round.


To fit an average hand.

The mitt measures - lying flat:

Length - 10 inches/26 cm

Width - 4 inches/10 cm

The yarn I used has some elasticity so that it has a snug fit but does stretch to fit around your palm.

You may want to make the mitts longer or wider depending on your preference.


Small batch sales of finished pieces made from this pattern are permitted, but the seller must use their own photographs and credit must be given to Handy Little Me as the designer.
