Notes

These Peacock mittens are a modified version of my Chicken Mitten pattern. The main difference being the added design on the Ruffle.
I knit the Body of these mittens with 3 strands of yarn held together and knit as one using:
Brown Sheep Top of the Lamp - Peacock.
Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine - color 1285.
Frog Tree Alpaca Sport - color 064.
The alpaca makes these very soft.
I used Peace Fleece worsted - Baltic Blue, for the Outer Cuff; and Cascade Superwash 220 color 801, for the Inner Cuff. I do love double cuffs for extra warmth.
I slightly modified the comb at the top to make the center the tallest spike.
These were fun to knit - and a great way to use up stash.
