A playful take on a winter basic, these mittens are worked in reverse stockinette stitch in the round. Neat, narrow stripes and contrast thumbs and cuffs put every inch of lofty llama-wool blend to good use.

Yarn: Cascade Pastaza (50% llama; 50% wool, 132 yd [121 m]/100 g): #084 teal (MC) and #004 wheat germ (CC), 1 skein each.
Yarn weight: #4 - Medium
Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rows = 4" in rev St st.
Needles: Size 7 (4.5 mm): set of 5 double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
