You should already know how to knit in the round with double pointed needles or magic loop
I love owls, they're so dang cute and wanted to design a pattern for mittens that had owls on them. I also just learned how to make a Latvian Braid and wanted to incorporate that detail. Here's what I came up with.
Bonus- I have also included with the pattern a 2 page tutorial/ pictorial mini class on how to knit a Latvian Braid. Make a cute pair of mittens and learn a new skill all for the price of one pattern.
Suggested Yarns: Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino, Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light or Manos del Uruguay Rittenhouse Merino 5-Ply
29 stitches = 4 inches in Stockinette Stitch
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
Sizing given for 4 different sizes of mittens for women.
