NaKniMitMo12 - stained glass mittens

finished my mittens for NaKniMitMo!  this is stained glass mittens aka cloisonné, the yarn harlot's latest knitting craze.

knit on size 6 needles, the cuff is a four row pattern in which a stitch is knit from 4 rows below, also known as K4B.  it took a couple tries to get the pattern figured out, but it wasn't as hard as i thought.  the main color is ella rae worsted in a pinky red;  patons brown for the "lead" and ella rae (yellow), plymouth worsted (orange) and patons (olive) for the contrasting colors.

this is an insanely awesome pattern.  on wednesday i bought more patons yarn so i could knit up more mittens.  yes, this is a stash buster project, but i found the perfect pale pink.  and orchid.  and i really don't have grey, which would look lovely with the pink and orchid and cream.

yes, this pattern is going to get a lot of use.
