Charming mittens reminiscent of the traditional mittens of Gotland,
an island off the south eastern coast of Sweden. Featuring a small,
easy-to-memorize, three-color, geometric pattern (a variation of
motif 10, page 52) and a simple peasant thumb.

Only every fourth round uses all three colors, making it a great first project for using more than two colors. You may duplicate stitch the third color if desired.
