Let these pollinator-friendly mittens remind you of summer when the winter winds come blowing! These cheerful mittens feature motifs fit for the beekeeper in all of us.
This pattern is suitable for the knitter with experience knitting mittens, reading a chart and stranded colorwork. There are 3 rows that use 3 colors per round, the rest of the mitten uses 2 colors per round.

I used one skein each of Cascade 220 Sport in colors: Azure (8892), Cyan Blue (8891), Natural (8010), Lemon Yellow (4147) and Van Dyke Brown (7822).

Finished mitten is 8 inches in circumference and 11 inches from edge to tip. Ribbing accounts for 2.75 inches of length.
