The strong directional quality of these mittens will complement any winter jacket. The personality of the chevron pattern changes dramatically based on color choice. Choose lighter hues for a subtle design or bold contrasting colors for more personality. This set is ideal for knitters venturing into stranded colorwork as it only uses 2 colors and the floats are short. Two skeins of Quince and Co. Chickadee in coordinating colors will make these mittens with lots left over to knit a coordinating Vector hat.
