Red Velvet

from Wannafelt Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Red Velvet
Red Velvet
Red Velvet
Red Velvet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit, purl, decreases.
  • Stranded knitting.
  • Knitting in the round.

Pattern Description:

Red Velvet is uses heart and scroll motifs and has two options for the cuff, with or without a ruffle. Photo shows option "with" ruffle. Written directions and charts for colorwork for both options. Right and left-hand mittens are identical. Directions for the ruffle are written and charted.

The "no ruffle" option uses a short 2 x 2 rib at the cuff.

Pattern works well with variegated yarns for either the background OR motif.

All my mitten patterns include other knitting tips in regard to yarn dominance, floats, decreases, and increases.

Happy knitting!
