These cosy mittens are worked from the cuff, which is worked flat then seemed. Stitches for the body of the mittes are worked in raw ends of cuff, which is worked in waistcoat stitch. The colourwork pattern is worked using Fair Isle technique. The stitches are picked up for the thumb at the end.
The mittens are finished off with embellishment worked using double crochet (US sc) around the colourwok pattern, picture tutorial included in the pattern.
The cuff and first 8 rounds of the pattern are written, the rest charted
The pattern is free and includes picture tutorial on how to create waistcoat stitch and work Fair Isle colourwork. For videos on those two techniques please go to my blog: http://moochkauk.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/ramble-mittens-tutorials.html
Please note that pattern is written using UK terminology with US conversion given in abbreviation list.
