Wild roses is an e-book of four patterns: a cardigan, a cowl, a hat and fingerless mitts with stranded colorwork featuring delicate branches and flowers.

Included are some tips on colorwork and fair isle and a tutorial on how to use Jenny’s cast on as a provisional cast on in a separate pdf: Wild rose tips.

The Wild rose mitts are worked bottom up from cuff to fingers starting with Jenny’s magic cast on used as as a provisional cast on to work the double cuffs. They come in three sizes: small, medium and large. The sample is the medium size.
It is perfect to work up some little rests. I used three different green tints for the flowers blending them together to get a smooth transition. The colorwork is charted only.
