Rose and Heart Mitten
Rose and Heart Mitten - a 2-stranded colorwork mitten with an invisible thumb, knit from the bottom up and in the round.
A good friend is like a rare rose, something to be cherished. My good friend was having surgery, and I had just finished a pair of mittens for another friend, that she thought were lovely. I decided to make a pair for her. We picked a lovely mitten; the problem was, the part she liked was on the cuff, not the mitten itself. So, a new pattern was created, Rose and Heart Mitten, a gift made to celebrate true friendship.
