For all those who love CATS and crafts with yarns!
I love your chevron pattern! I knit and quilt this style a lot using my regular mitten pattern passed down from my Grandmother to my Mother to her daughters. I modified it to start decreasing the stiches same as you would for finishing a full mitten. This allows the shaping to gently close in a bit to hug the fingers before casting off. I'm a trucker and I love wearing this style starting out on those cool mornings, I retain my dexterity to adjust dials and controls.
