Mod Mittens 1
The Mod mittens start with a Latvian braid and feature a bold geometric pattern reminiscent of the mod textile patterns of the 1960's. The colors are reversed on the palms for added interest.

I used Cascade 220 Sport for these mittens - this has become a go-to colorwork yarn for me because of the range of colors and the reasonable price.
