There is only ONE version of this pattern to download and it IS the Revised Version… anyone who has bought this pattern (at any time) in the past has access to the updated, most recent version in their Ravelry library. (thank you)

A NEW Version of the Pattern called REVISED 2016 has been launched. Please use that version. Slight updates and formatting to assist knitters. :) Thank you so much! Happy Knitting!!!!!

This is a fun short rows pattern.

It has been written out so most people can follow it, but if you have not worked this technique before you might want to try something smaller like the Leafy Mitts (of mine) in worsted weight first- or another short row pattern.

It can be made in 2 colors or as many as you like. There are different versions I made developing this pattern that show different numbers of colors.


updated pattern with missing M1 in section 23.
it is NOW in the pattern.

stitch counts corrected from Section 24 FORWARD.
Incorporated into pattern version now available,
please use updated version…
start of Section 24= 345 … end of Section 24 = 366 (change from 365) from this point forward, the stitch counts are off & short by ONE stitch,
EG: start of Sec. 25=370 end of 25=396 (NOT 395…)… and so on. Thank you.
