Twisted Rock Mittens

Description

These cozy mittens in four adult sizes (XS/S/M/L) will appeal to any friend or family member who loves a rugged, outdoorsy look. The fabric design is worked in larger sections of contrasting texture to make great use of a marled or speckled yarn and of course, a solid or heathered shade as well. The yummy, two-tone cable adds just a bit more depth and interest. This is easy knitting at its best—almost every round of the pattern is worked the same, so it makes a great beginner or travel project. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, elasticity, or yardage requirement.
