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).

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