This pattern is from the book "Stitch Red". The mittens were designed by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed. Talk about a challenge. These mittens contained not only cables but bobbles, chevron, slip stitch, thumbs and of course, knit and purl! I decided to make the mittens flip tops instead of regular mittens because that way, I can wear them during different seasons. I used 1 whole skein of Swans Island Worsted in "Seasmoke". This yarn is beautiful to work with. Very soft and pretty!
