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.
