Mitts: The mitts are knitted from the bottom up, working the color work patterns in the cuff section. After the cuff is completed, increases for the thumb begins. After the desired thumb length is reached, thumbs stitches are placed on waste yarn as the rest of the mitt is completed. Stitches for the thumb are placed back on the needles and completed with the same ribbing used for the rest of the mitt.

Cowl: The cowl reflects the patterning of the cuff of the mitts and continues to the neck with complimentary motifs. Two decrease rounds help to shape the garment. This cowl can be worn either around the neck or around the shoulders. Worn around the shoulders, the shaping helps the garment rest lightly in place, adding just the right amount of warmth to the upper body. Worn as a cowl, this same shaping gives a graceful drape around the neck area.
