These mittens were designed to be go with the Latu Hat designed by Meiju K-P.

I was inspired by the off centre cable of the hat, so I created an offset cable beside the thumb on the right and left mittens.

This is a nice quick knit that will keep your fingers toasty. Make sure you make the Latu Hat to go with it, and your will be warm head to…fingers. Hmmm…maybe I should design socks or legwarmers to go with?

If you can get your hands on Gaynor Homestead’s Home pure Ramboullet yarn, DO IT! It feels like cashmere and knits like a dream. They only have a limited amount spun up each year, so make sure you jump on it while they have it in stock.
