Knit your way through the seasons with the Woodland Winter Mittens! These stranded colorwork mitts are sure to keep your hands toasty warm as you knit a pair for every month from October to March. The scene on each pair of mittens shows off the transitions of winter, starting with falling leaves, then grazing elk, northern lights, snowflakes, snow birds, and finally a sprouting seed. Each mitten has a different picture on each hand, which creates a larger scene when you hold your hands together.

All twelve of the mittens begin with simple ribbing, which can be adjusted for length to suit your hands and preference. The palm circumference can easily be adjusted by changing needle size. All colorwork patterns are charted, and two complete colorways are given.
