Classically stranded mittens pattern with Latvian braids and a simple ribbing. The pattern is regular and easy to remember. The same pattern is used for palm and back of hands. In some places long floats are inevitable, and it is recommended that you weave in your yarn every 3rd stitch as you go. You can choose, if you’d like to work single coloured or patterned thumbs.

This is one of those patterns that emerged, when I just watched the clouds and mindlessly scribbled something. Most often, the mittens come about first and then the matching hat.

When working the pattern, keep the contrast colour strand near you, so it will be the more pronounced one (dominant).
Thorough explanations as well as links to technical videos are included.
