Pattern Description:

Traditional suit patterns become bold and modern when enlarged. The different patterns included let you avoid second mitt syndrome by making mis-matched mitts if you're feeling funky.

This pattern was designed to introduce basic intarsia techniques. The knitter has a choice of when to move to the next level of complexity.
These mitts are knit flat and seamed at the end. The colorwork is charted.
