Mittens to Match

Pattern:  Classic Mittens from Free Vintage Knitting on Ravelry.
Yarn:  Cascade Yarns Cloud, 70% Merino, 30% baby alpaca.
Needles:  #4 dpns.
 Comments:  The stitch pattern on the cuffs is from the brim of the hat pattern in my previous post.
Since it is not a very stretchy stitch, I had to go down a size for the cuff of the mittens, this made it necessary to lengthen things a bit, which I do in most mitten patterns anyway.  The red is very difficult to photograph, and it is really a deeper red than shows on the screen.  They have not been blocked yet, so that might make the stitching look a bit more even.  They're just in time for a cold snap here in Minnesota!
