Very smart--changing up the stitch--adds a lot of interest. How old is your Grandson who selected this?

Thanks, this GS is 9, he likes Grandma's mittens and socks and often picks his own yarns, or at least specifies color.

Great idea! I just made a swirl beanie with a similar pattern and I want to make matching mittens-- this would be perfect! Do you think due to the swirl I will need to CO any extra stitches to keep the mitten the written size?

I didn't cast on any extra stitches, just knit to pattern and it worked fine. But if you think your swirl might need extra do a gauge swatch using the swirl stitch. This pattern is so flexible I think it would take a stitch pattern that draws together many stitches before it would need any real altering.
