I didn't really use one particular pattern per se, I sort of combined a few different ones and used the parts of each that I liked. The cable part is based on the Dashing mitts from knitty, and the rest is based on some other generic mitten patterns because I wanted a thumb gusset and not just the waste yarn thumb that the Dashing and Fetching patterns use. The yarn is some Red Heart 'McIntosh' from Wal-Mart, the colour is called grapevine. It's a wool/acrylic blend. I mostly bought it for the colours which felt very autumn-ish.
