I've been knitting for just about a year. I've mostly made scarfs and one hat. So I decided that it was time to try mittens. They aren't perfect, but I made them and I am super proud of them Smiley
The yarn is yummy noro Kureyo , knitted up on size 6 dpn.

Wow, what a beautiful colour choice.
Your mittens turned out real cute. Good job!  Cheesy
I love the pattern that you used. I'm fond of the natural roll of the Stockinette stitch.
Mind if I ask you what pattern you used, for your mittens?
Or where I can find the pattern, if it's a free one?
Thanks.

That is a yummy yarn. And you rock, showing the thumb gusset up close with NO holes or gaps. That was (and sometimes still is) my personal mitten nemesis - don't even get me started on gloves with fingers!
