I’ve always loved the look of Eye of Partridge pattern, but I’ve only ever seen it on sock heels. It’s commonly used in sock heels because it is double-thick, and therefore extra sturdy and warm. Both qualities that are also put to good use in mittens. These mittens also have an optional escape hatch for your thumbs so that you can keep up with your correspondence no matter how cold it is.

This pattern does particularly well with highly variegated yarns because the slip stitch pattern breaks up pooling.
