Notes: This pattern uses mirrored increases to achieve
a thumb gusset with correct angles for right and left
mitten. The right mitten uses kfb and the left mitten
uses pfb followed by k1 to achieve the same look as
the right mitten.
The cable detail is mirrored on right and left mittens.
Please note also that when moving the cable stitches,
the set-up of the stitches between the markers change in
order to maintain the stitch pattern.
