Matilda Mitts are the perfect companion for crisp autumn days! They knit up quickly and feature a clever thumb construction for a great fit.

The pattern has been newly laid out and revised to make sure both Matilda Cowl and Mitts can be made with only one skein of yarn!

The cable panel is both written and charted.
