The slipped and cabled stitches in this pattern form a tessellated design of pointed ovals which smartly nestle together. The stitch pattern is relatively simple and easy to follow, but makes the mitts an impressive gift. Choose a smooth, solid-colored yarn to highlight the raised stitch pattern. Make the Bas Relief Cowl and Bas Relief Hat for a full set.
