Ravenclaw pride is easy to display with this eye-catching mitt pattern.
Knit in navy and bronze, with a stranded center framing the strong and proud "R", they're a classy way to show where your loyalties lie.
This pattern is a little tricky, but is a good introduction to stranded knitting. Just make sure to leave plenty of give in the strands, to allow for stretching, and you should be just fine!

I got my start sitting on my grandmother's lap and operating the knee pedal on her old Singer while she worked as a seamstress...must've been 3-4 years old. Such happy memories!
I owe my knitting and crochet skills to my paternal grandmother, who was determined to make a lady out of her unruly, tomboy granddaughter. I'd like to think she succeeded....somewhat.
