These intricately patterned mittens are worked in the round. The cuff begins with a Latvian Braid, and the rest of the hand and thumb are worked in stranded colorwork from a chart.
When working the Right and Left Hands Charts, pay attention to the repeat lines; you will be repeating the two stitches within the lines for the required number of stitches on the palm of the hand.
