The beauty of the African sunset, conveniently located on mittens, for when we need its bright warmth the most. With giraffes!

This pattern is for intermediate knitters and assumes that you have some familiarity with stranded colorwork and can knit, purl, decrease and increase in the round. The chart is color coded. There are some long floats, but only 2 colors at a time are used.

The pattern says that st 34 is included in the thumb gusset. This should be st 35. I will fix this soon.

Cascade 220 fingering in colorways Navy (110yds), Silver (72yds), Lemon Yellow (50yds), Jack-O-Lantern (28yds) and Cherry Blossom (17yds).

Finished mitten measures 10cm (4 inches) wide and 25.5cm (10 inches) long.
