Boysenberry Mittens: a sweet way to keep hands warm! Isn’t it great to see the return of bobbles to knitted work? They make such a clever and exuberant contribution to fabric texture and are great fun for the knitter. A simply shaped mitten with a rounded top features a puffy berry motif on a background of directional stitches. An afterthought I-cord edge treatment supports a long-ish cuff and a fully fashioned thumb gusset. These jaunty mittens were first published in Love of Knitting, Winter 2017 (Jagody Mittens). Check out the matching Boysenberry Hat!

These mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up beginning
with a provisional cast-on.
