The pattern as given is for a woman’s size large. For size medium and small, skip the Body Increase round. For size small, try using a finer yarn and smaller needles. If you are new to cables, practice the cable pattern a few times on a gauge swatch. It’s an easy 4-row pattern of 6 stitches and it will be referred to in the mitten pattern as [Little Plait Cable Pattern]. This means to follow the cable pattern as established.
