“Hallo, Rabbit,” he said, “is that you?”
“Let’s pretend it isn’t,” said Rabbit, “and see what happens.”
-- A. A. Milne

This is a pattern for a pair of mittens & 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 2 Rabbit styles to choose from - A & B. Since there are longer floats over the rabbit section, you may want to use the Ladder-back/Invisible Jacquard technique shown (included).

Mitten Lining: If you would like to work a lining, working your mittens a size larger than your hand and then working the lining a size smaller usually works for most people. You may pick up sts from the inside of the mitten (after ribbing) and work the chart in a single colour or work lining separately and sew in. For my sample, I used BFL/Masham and worked the lining separately from the mitten and increased the length of the rib and decreased the top every other round instead of every round.
