Free Pattern Friday: Fox Grape mittens

I finished a hat a little while ago, and so mittens are natural follow-up.  The Fox Grape mittens (by Amy Christoffers) from Berroco are beautiful; I love the way the colour scheme is reversed on the top and bottom halves of the mittens.  The only thing I might change is to figure out a tighter cuff; I think it won't look as nice but loose, garter-stitch cuffs let in a surprising amount of wind and snow.  Maybe they would just have to be shoulder-season mitts...
