Marley's Garden is a good pattern for knitters who are newer to stranded knitting. The motif is not complicated and the front and back of the mitten are identical.
Detailed measurements are given along with a diagram to help you obtain a good mitten fit.
The pattern includes three versions of the motif. Each version comes with its own small/medium (64 sts) and medium/large (68 sts) color charts. 3 patterns, 2 sizes, 6 charts in all. So with lots of color combinations to dream up it can be a good value.
Written directions and charts for colorwork.
All my mitten patterns include other knitting tips in regard to yarn dominance, floats, decreases, and increases.
This pattern coordinates well with the free "Candy Stripes" scarf/shawlette pattern.
Unblocked, 9 sts & 11 rows / inch on US 0.
I saw floral felted purses and knew I wanted to felt! But first I had to learn to knit. My knitting passion has taken me to lace, scarves, socks, and a passionate love for stranded knitting. Stranded knitting opens up so many creative possibilities with motifs and color combinations.
