Buds of Spring Mittens
Designed by Janet Welsh Knits


These mittens are inspired by the pops of green that sprout when trees begin to bud, while the memory of snow is still fresh in our minds. The lace motif of a budding tree in the cuff is echoed in the stranded pattern on the top of the hand. Combining the delicacy of lace with the grounded substance of stranded colourwork results in a mitten that is perfect for wearing on a chilly spring evening.

This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter with some experience working with charts and knitting in the round. The lace cuff has a simple garter stitch border or optional Latvian braids. Designer tips are provided for those who are new to stranded colourwork.

A few optional duplicate stitches highlight Rudolph’s nose. 



This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter with some experience working with charts and knitting in the round. Designer tips are provided for those who are new to stranded colourwork.

Autumn Snow Mittens 
Designed by Janet Welsh Knits


These mittens are inspired by the first snowfall of the year that often comes in autumn, when the leaves have turned and their colours are still brightly laying on the ground. The first dusting of snow is always a beautiful sight as it sparkles down.

The pattern takes advantage of the subtle transitions of colour in Knit Picks Chroma, colour-transitioning, fingering weight yarn, shown in Vermont/Natural. This gives the mittens the effect of being knit with several different colours of yarn, when in fact only two colours of yarn are required.

The pattern will also show off the snowflakes beautifully when knit with two solid-colour yarns, using Knit Picks Palette in Clove Heather/White.
