This pattern was inspired by the Brambles beret pattern from Knitty by Amanda Muscha. With her permission, I have released this pattern for matching mittens. The pattern features the cable found on the body of the beret (I have not included this chart…you can get it from the original beret pattern) with the addition of a right-side cable, and a new chart for the upper-mitten that is designed to mirror the decrease section of the beret.

The mittens are designed with the cable pattern on the back and stockinette stitch on the palms. The upper-mitten chart only shows the patterned side, so you will need to remember to decrease the stockinette side when you work a decrease row on the patterned side. I used less than two skeins of Cascade 220 superwash to knit the beret and mittens, with about half a skein left-over yarn.

pattern is written for two circular method…you could knit the cuff and the body with the larger needles and eliminate the smaller ones if necessary
