Oxen might not be as fast as horses, but they’re hardy—and well suited to working in deep snow, which might explain why they caught on and remain popular in New England.

“Hardy and good for snow” describes these knit mitts and hat as well, which feature an ox-horn cable worked in a rich burgundy color.

Pattern Notes
Mitts are worked from the cuff to the fingertips, then the thumb is worked at the end. The hat is worked from the brim to the cap. As written, the mitts feature a long cuff and the beanie is snugly fitted. To adjust, simply increase or decrease length by 4 row increments.
