♫ The Music ♫
Inspired by the beautiful love song Moonlight in a Winter Sky by Rose-Marie Cameron and Carey Parder – dappled rays of moonlight reflecting and interweaving on winter snow.

The Winter Moonlight Mittens feature an interlaced cable and rib design which grows from the cuff ribbing. The cable is featured on the back of each mitten while the palm and thumb are worked in Stockinette stitch.

The mittens are knit in the round, from the cuff upward, beginning with a stretchy cast on. Increases are worked to form the thumb gusset. Thumb stitches are then placed on waste yarn while the upper portion of the mitten is worked. The mitten top is bound off using a modified Zigzag Bind Off or stitches can be grafted. Stitches are then picked up at the gap above the thumb gusset and are worked along with the held stitches to create the thumb.

The Winter Moonlight Hat pattern matches these mittens.
