Clue 1 - Materials List

Mystery Mittens
Clue 1
Materials List

Option 1:  Solid Color Mittens
50 grams of worsted weight yarn.  Lighter or medium colors will work better than darker colors.  Avoid varigated yarns.

Option 2:  Two-colored mittens
25 grams of worsted weight yarn (darks or varigated are OK) - Color A
25 grams of worsted weight yarn in a light or medium solid - Color B

Set of double pointed needles to get a gauge of about 5-1/2 stitches per inch.  (I used American size 4 or 3.5 mm).

Cable needle or extra double point needle

Waste yarn for marking thumb placement

A small amount of yarn in a contrasting color for adding embroidered detail.

Well, I'm game. I've got yarn, needles, cable needle, etc. This should be a lot of fun.
