One of my earliest memories is of digging in the ground beneath one of my motherʼs fragrant rose bushes. This stranded colorwork mitten depicts an heirloom rose and chain links typical of fences of the 1960ʼs like the one I remember. I hope youʼll find digging your needles intothe stitches of these roses as enjoyable as my memory of digging around the roses of my youth.

The Climbing Rose Mitten requires two skeins of fingering weight yarn (approx 150yd each). Sample was knit using Lost City Knits Local Alpaca Llama Fingering Weight Yarn and is sold as a kit HERE and has enough yarn to make 2 pairs of mittens.

The mitten palm has the dark color as dominate, and the top or rose side has the light color as dominate.
