Festive season is in full swing and it's my favorite time of the year because I can wrap myself up in some gorgeous hand knit sweaters and spend my days cozying up on the couch with my knitting in hand. Amsterdam is beautiful this time of year but venturing outside requires layering up, so I've designed my new favorite mittens to keep my hands cozy as I cycle along the icy canals.
Collect a colorful pile of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit these gorgeous Painting Bricks Mittens. Select your favorite main color to frame the painterly contrast color pops for the bold brick motif and add these mittens to your Painting Bricks collection. These beginner friendly mittens are also perfect for your first colorwork project because you only work with one color at a time and the pattern becomes soothingly repetitive. The colorful bricks are created through simple stripes in garter and stockinette stitches that are accented with slip stitches, and I just love how playful you can be with your palette.
