These stranded mittens feature two different motifs and can be worn with either side on the tops of your hands. For ease of working, the pattern refers to a specific Left and Right Mitten, though the fit is interchangeable depending on which side you feel like wearing “up”. Latvian braids centered over the ribbed cuff add a unique detail to this classic mitten shape with a side-gore thumb.
