Everyday Autumn accessories don’t need to be bland. Take a gorgeous yarn, throw in a textured stitch pattern, and you have something you’ll love wearing on chilly days. The Hermia Mitts are a sophisticated pair of mitts that are incredibly easy to wear dressed up or down. Noelle has a lovely halo and a sparkle that makes this yarn so exciting to work with. Gentle color shifts in Noelle make the cable panels look even more exciting. These mitts are certain to be ones you will wear again and again.

After establishing the Left and Right Panel patterns, rounds 1-12 of these patterns are repeated continuously throughout the remainder of the mitts.
