Inspired by the beautiful textiles of Kyrgyzstan and by Scandinavian colorwork traditions, these mittens delight with their exquisite design and cashmere warmth.

Worked from cuff to tip, the mittens begin with a garter stitch border and then change to stranded colorwork, with the thumb coming out from the side. After knitting the cuff, you will begin shaping the thumb gusset. Once the gusset is complete, you put the thumb stitches on hold and work the rest of the hand, finishing with a grafted close. The final step is to put the thumb stitches back on the needles and complete the thumb. Both mittens are identical. The pattern is charted only, with separate charts for the small and large sizes.
