Patchwork Mittens

Mittens photo #1 square cropA great first intarsia project with just one join per row. The hands of these mittens are knit flat – the seam is part of the patchwork design! The thumbs are knit seamlessly in the round. And no need to limit yourself to just 2 colors (see the photo examples of multi-color mittens made with small amounts of leftover stash). Make some for everyone in the family!

This design is suitable for a knitter who can knit, purl, work decreases and increases, and work comfortably in the round on double point needles (the thumbs are knit in the round). The pattern is 4 pages long, and as with all my patterns, it has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit to be clear and free of errors.
