I had a bunch of Crystal Palace Iceland yarn left over from the hot pink Capucine that I made recently, so I decided to make a pair of chunky mittens to match. I couldn't find a pattern that I liked that used super bulky yarn, so I came up with my own!

This was the result ... a chunky mitten that still has a close fit, and features an XO cable along the back of the hand.

I've posted the pattern on my blog (http://electricpurls.blogspot.com/2010/12/chunky-hugs-kisses-mittens.html) as well as on ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chunky-hugs--kisses-mittens) for anyone who's interested in checking it out or using it as inspiration!
