Heartland Marsh

Inspired by the little known wetlands of Indiana, USA, Heartland Marsh uses stranded knitting, stripes, and gansey inspired motifs to create a warm and rustic mitten that recalls my local landscape.

Pattern Notes
These mittens are worked from the bottom to top. Beginning with the cuff, a rolled hem is worked, followed by 1x1 ribbing. The front and back of the mitten’s body features a stranded tree motif, which is worked simultaneously as the thumb gusset increases. Lastly, the thumb is worked separately.
