Pattern Description:

A pattern set for fingerless mitts, mittens, legwarmers, and a cowl, all in your choices of chevron block stranded colorwork patterns!

Work chevrons together with stranded colorwork to create an assortment of different V designs, depending on exactly how you stripe your yarns, how many colors you use, etc.

Use fingering weight to make fingerless mitts or full mittens, worsted weight for legwarmers or a cowl; each item is given in three different sizes and can be made in any of the chevron color block designs.

This can be a great project for using up leftovers, or for bits of self-striping or variegated yarns, if you get creative with the color block patterns.

You'll never need to work with more than two yarns at a time, but some prior stranded colorwork experience is recommended, as it's a bit tricky working the stranded colors with the chevron pattern at the same time. But the results are well worth the effort!

The PDF is 17 pages long, with the written pattern on 5 photo-less pages, the 16 different chart options on 3 pages, and lots of photos of the different samples/options included with the notes.
