Construction Notes:

Get ready for a satisfying and engaging knitting experience with Snowdrift Mittens. These charming mittens are worked in the round from the cuff up, starting with a ribbed cuff and transitioning to a stunning cable motif across the back of the hand. The pattern includes increases for the thumb across the palm, allowing for a comfortable and practical fit.

The mittens are worked seamlessly, with stitches for the thumb placed on waste yarn to be worked later. The cables continue up the back of the hand, ending with a charted decrease section for the fingers, which are then closed using the kitchener stitch. The thumb is worked last, also in the round, completing the cozy and stylish design.

With clear written and charted instructions, as well as video tutorials, Snowdrift Mittens are perfect for knitters of all skill levels. And with only one skein of DK yarn required, these mittens are a quick and rewarding project, making them the perfect gift for loved ones (or yourself!) during the winter season.
