Stitch counts for the large size mittens in the decrease section are missing from the pdf pattern. The correction is below!

Knit out of squishy but durable worsted weight wool, this set is warm and stylish. Make the mittens fancy with cables, which echo the architectural lines and curves of southern Spain, or keep it simple but elegant with arched rib and plain hand.
