Plum Pudding

If you love the Pumpkin Butter socks, you'll love the Plum Pudding mittens! These mittens feature the same colorwork diamond pattern, but are knit up in heavier yarn for a warm outer layer that works up quickly.

This pattern is perfect for playing with color: use 2 solid colors, 1 solid and 1 variegated, or try a self-striping yarn! Match your mittens, or reverse the main and contrast colors for the 2nd mitten to get a contrasting pair.
