You can also find this pattern in my new ebook Sun & Ice, which brings together 12 little accessories patterns for adults, kids and home.

These graphic mitts will keep you warm and looking elegant. They are worked in the round for a seamless finish.

The pattern includes both charts AND written instructions.

The sport weight yarn makes for a finer knit than dk, but without the work of fingering yarn - a good option for spring and autumn weather. Choose a yarn with great stitch definition and a solid colour for best effect.

You can also buy the mitts together with gorgeous matching cowls in the ebook Ice Storms.
