Modification Monday: Herrington Mittens

Original Pattern: Herrington

Knitter Extraordinaire: Cherie (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Created mittens to match the original cowl, using the stitch on a smaller scale and integrating it into a mitten, as well as over the first half of the thumb, and a speckled design on the back of the thumb. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: It's always a compliment to the designer when people create a matching accessory for an existing pattern, because it shows that the original pattern was so compelling, you just have to knit something else using this great design. I love Cherie's mittens- they are so striking and modern, and I love her solution for using the chevron design on half the thumb, with the speckles on  the other side. Cherie's matching mittens are a stunning compliment to her winter wardrobe, for sure.
