FO: Chunky Hugs & Kisses Mittens
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 as well as on ravelry for anyone who's interested in checking it out or using it as inspiration!
