Woolen Mittens

These little brown mittens were a request from a friend who wanted brown mittens suitable for snowball fights.

The yarn is Organik (70% organic merino, 15% silk, 15% baby alpaca) and it was lovely to work with, also had a nice heathery color tone, which I love.

The pattern was from a book, The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, purchased at Purl in Soho New York and avail online: I have used this book many, many times and would highly recommend it as it allows you to use any type of yarn you like. It feels like the step before creating your own patterns and has helped me to understand better how a pattern works.
