Bias knit fabric is one of my favorites to play with, both for its drape and form-fitting qualities and for the way it mixes up traditional patterns into something fresh and new.
Here, I combined some sweet and old-fashioned colorwork motifs with bold stripes, unusual shaping, and unexpected colors to make a pair of mitts that are truly one of a kind (or two of a pair!).
