With these mitts, the designer punches up a simple, geometric stranded-knitting motif with horizontal stripes in contrasting colors. A fuzzy, haloed angora/wool blend makes stitches seem to dissolve into each other, creating an effect that is at once ordered and melting.

great pattern Review by Susan

Well written, with clear instructions. Fun to knit and fast to finish. I added 2 stitches to the thumb, as it seemed a bit tight, but otherwise the pattern was perfect.
