Hansen Mittens

These handsome mitts are toasty warm because the color stranding adds an extra layer of insulation. Once established, the chevron pattern (which is repeated on the palm of the hand) is very easy to follow.
Past the thumb opening, you may not need to look at your chart again until you reach the top decreases.
