Interwoven cables criss-cross the surface of these cozy mitts, providing rich texture and extra warmth. The stitch pattern is both written and charted, and the geometric design is easy to follow. For a matching set, check out the slouchy Mandala Hat, with decreases at the crown creating a fractal design reminiscent of circular mandala patterns.
