Keep your hands warm during chilly morning walks with the Marquam mittens. The fully faced cuff of this classic ski-style accessory, charted for three sizes, wards off even the stiffest of breezes while adding stability to the ribbed outer fabric. Choosing your colors for this project will be a joy as Arbor’s breadth of jewel tones and soothing neutrals lend themselves brilliantly to the spherical colorwork motif, which can be worked in either two or four colors.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory are charted only.
