From the designer:
The Peppermint Swirl Mittens feature a swirling cable that twists up each mitten from the cuff to the fingertips. They are knit in the round starting at the cuff and feature easy to follow directions for the cable section. The thumb is put on hold while the hand of the mitten is knit and then stitches are picked up to finish it.
