Crazy Quilts are fun because they use a lot of colors and reflect the personality and color choices of the crafter. That’s the idea behind these mitts. Choose the order of colors you want to progress in as you knit the mitts from the bottom up. The mitts look best with four or five different colors.

Jorstad Creek Vashon, the yarn called for in the pattern is no longer available. We recommended Jorstad Creek Glacier Creek or other heavy worsted yarn. Kits are available from Jorstad Creek Yarns at jorstadcreek.com

The use of a little slip stitch when you change colors in the body of the mitt gives it that extra crazy quilt feature you see when sewers use a blanket stitch on the quilt pieces. The ruffle at the wrist adds extra pizzazz.

The two mitts are knit the same way and are interchangeable.
