"Lady's Mittens with Thumb"
This is a pattern that stands the test of time; the design looks fresh and wearable today.
The yarn I will be using is Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport, in Bougainvillea (a lovely deep pink), and size 5 needles should get gauge.
The pattern is written to be worked flat and seamed. I'm going to knit the mitts in the round instead. There's a nice little detail on the back of the mitts, a little row of herringbone embroidery stitch. Not sure what color I'll use for that yet, probably black.
