Portland Mittens

July 2010
Aran (8 wpi) ?
24 stitches and 41 rows = 4 inches
in slip st pattern on larger needles
US 7 - 4.5 mm
US 8 - 5.0 mm
327 yards (299 m)

These mittens combine color and texture in a honeycomb pattern.
The three-dimensional stitch pattern keeps your hands especially
warm by trapping additional air, and the snug ribbed cuffs keep
the breezes out. Worked mostly in muted tones, the mittens have a splash of color in contrasting-color thumbs and striped cuffs.
