I am very much a visual learner, and color is the most important art element to me. I always notice color first. I am an elementary school Visual Arts teacher, K-8. I paint, illustrate, knit, and design knitting patterns in my free time. There in lies the reason I call myself "Snow Day Artist" - I'm always looking for 'free time'. My studio is in a 200 year old farm house I share with my husband, and there's always a few chickens roaming the yard. I have a quirky streak that comes out in my knitting and illustrating, it's a fun world to live in.

These mittens were designed to be BEAUTIFUL and practical (with the long double cuffs). They are a fashion statement. Bold colors and a unique design make the child who wears them feel loved, warm, and very special.
These mittens don't require a lot of yarn. Use the yarns suggested (Peace Fleece, Cascade 220, and Plymouth) in Worsted Weight, or use what you have on hand - any worsted weight yarn will do. You will want to make several pairs!
The pattern is 5 pages long, and includes 16 instructional, close-up photos to show just what you need to know.
NOTE: This pattern comes with 2 Bonus Versions: Honey Bee and Ladybug!! - 3 patterns in one!
Body: 9 sts = 2", 15 rows = 2"
Cuff: 10-12 sts = 2", 14 rows = 2"
