Simple stranded colourwork mittens with an I-cord cuff edge and striped palms and thumbs. The sample shown was made from 1 skein each of Jamieson Shetland Heather Aran in Grouse (MC) and Burnt Umber (CC).

Resizing is best accomplished by changing gauge: use a slightly heavier yarn and larger needles for bigger mittens, and a slightly lighter yarn and smaller needles for smaller mittens.
