eBook : 4 patterns

Counting Fingerless Mittens in 1, 2, 3, 4 Colors eBook is a wonderful way for knitters new to colorwork to practice their skills and work their way up to mittens made with four colors! Start out with one single color with the Smocked in One Color mittens, which allows the texture of the cables and smocking to really stand out. Next, incorporate a second color with the Meandering Mittens where two colors are used to create a winding pattern that shows off curved and linear motifs. In the Snakes and Ladders mittens, you will learn to work with three colors together, starting with individual ridges and curved embellishment for the cuffs which leads into working all three colors together for hands of the mitts. Finally, knitters will finish with the Cascading Kites wrist warmers where four colors are used together to create a unique motif that shifts colored stripes around the hand of the mitts. A whirlwind of texture and color, Counting Fingerless Mittens in 1, 2, 3, 4 Colors by Uma Padu is a must-have collection for adventurous knitters looking to explore unique uses of color.
