Reminiscent of blustering snow flurries, this matching set of cowl and fingerless mittens is both cuddly and delicate. Tiny cabling detail allows the ribbed edging to transition into colorwork gracefully, while the stranded colorwork body provides extra warmth and endless color possibilites!

Pattern construction directions are written, stitch details (basic cabling, colorwork) are charted only.
