Web-only project from Interweave Knits, Winter 2006, not in the magazine.

A pair of frosty-weather mittens in cool blues is just the project to get you started on your winter knitting. Debbie Bliss worked this pair in cashmere, and to make the mittens more functional, she made them convertible—a flip of the top exposes the fingers. Work a duplicate-stitch snowflake motif on the hand and add a bobble closure to hold the top flap closed.
