Wintergreen Mittens Pattern
The Wintergreen Mittens are a super cozy accessory for the cold winter weather. They are a quick knit with a bold cable design. The pattern calls for super bulky weight yarn that is a little on the lighter side. I have suggested three yarn brands below that are the perfect weight.
This entire project is knit in the round on double pointed needles, or you can substitute a magic loop. The thumb is a gusset thumb that will be placed onto a placeholder and then picked up and finished up at the end.
And, with your leftover yarn from this project, I have included a link at the end of this pattern for the FREE matching Wintergreen Headband pattern.
