There’s nothing like a pair of twined mittens to keep the hands warm on a cold day. The inspiration for this pair came from a cake of Z-twist yarn—white on the inside, black on the outside—and a mini-hank of red. After pouring over Anne Maj-Ling’s charts for twined knitting, I had my design. The mittens are knit from the cuff up, and can be easily worked as stranded mittens by working in stranded stockinette instead of twined stockinette. If you choose to strand them, notice that the block motifs make them an excellent pair of mittens to work as a color dominance sampler—just change dominance when you start the first round of a new set of blocks.
