Beorn Mitts (DK)
The construction for these mitts is slightly different than typical. Knit the chain cable and join the two ends, then pick up stitches for the hand. It is a slightly more complex cable than a simple crossover. This pattern includes instructions for both fingerless and full-hand mittens. The matching Beorn hat is also available, in DK and Worsted.
