The Holly mittens are worked tip down, beginning with a provisionally cast on strip, then adding stitches on either side and increasing rapidly. The initial strip of stitches becomes a framing oval that is drawn in at the wrist with some capped cables.
The berry baubles mark where to sew on the appliqued leaves once the rest of the mitten is finished.
The pattern is written in 5 sizes, 6 (7, 8, 9, 10) inch knuckle diameter.
It takes 1 (2,2,3,3) skeins of Cascade 220 Sport to make a pair of mittens (Thanks for the yarn support Cascade!)
