If you love the Pumpkin Butter socks, you’ll love the Plum Pudding mittens! These mittens feature the same colorwork diamond pattern, but knit up in heavier yarn for a warm outer layer that works up quickly.

This pattern is perfect for playing with color: use 2 solid colors, 1 solid and 1 variegated, or try a self-striping yarn! Match your mittens, or reverse the main and contrast colors for the 2nd mitten to get a contrasting pair.
