I've test knit these mittens in the middle of December, and now the pattern has been released. The Mod mittens by Kirsten Kapur.
I liked the design as soon as I saw it.
The colors are reversed on the palm side. This was a delightful knit.
I've used Cascade Yarns 220 Sport for these, and I think this is perfect yarn for colorwork. One ball of each color was needed to knit a pair, with a little left over.
The single mitten above will stay single. It was my first try. I cast on for size L, but my gauge was way off. It turned out huge. Like an oven mitt. I love the color combination, and until I need that yarn for something else, I'll just leave it for now.
The green/white ones are size S, and they fit my hands perfectly.
And a quick picture of the boys. Denny really has no idea of personal space.
Happy does not look so happy here, in fact, he soon after moved off to another place, leaving the dog bed to Denny.
