This is a pattern for a pair of mittens and muffatees worked from the bottom up and in the round, using the stranded colourwork technique.


There are charts for Left and Right mittens & muffatees. Finished size is determined by the needle size. In addition, there are 4 different animals to choose from: Barn Owl, Fox, Squirrel, and Rabbit.

And since there are longer floats over some sections, you may want to use the Ladder-back/Invisible Jacquard technique shown on the last page of this pattern.
