Using two colors of Iron Horse Farm worsted weight Blueface Leicester/Shetland, these mitts have corrugated ribbing which merges seamlessly into a slipped stitch pattern. The resulting fabric is surprisingly stretchy and has a wonderful depth and interest. The strong vertical lines and subtle horizontal lines look like railroad tracks.

The photos show the M/L mitt on the left and the S/M mitt on the right. You can make matching color mitts or do both colors as shown.

The pattern includes a tutorial for the two-color cable cast on technique.
