This is the Maine version of corregated ribbing -- K2K2 alternating colors. In this case, the Pink/Purple is carried "ahead" in the left hand, and the black in the right.
Good practice for two handed knitting (see Olympic Challenge), though for these mittens the point is to deliberately have the two colors draw up differently. Once I get into the hand there will be pictures of how the single stripes pull up and recede for a really nifty visual effect.
The other thing to do would then do a pair of mittens with the colors reversed.... but let's get this pair done first.
