Painting Bricks Mittens
Please select all options.
- This is a pdf knitting pattern.
Collect a colorful pile of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit these cozy winter mittens. Select a main color to frame the painterly contrast color pops for the bold brick motif. You can customize the length of the cuff and hand by simply working more pattern repeats as you knit in the round. These beginner friendly mittens are ideal for your first colorwork project because you only work with one color at a time. Simple stripes in garter stitch and stockinette stitch are accented with slip stitches to create the colorful bricks. Enjoy stash busting or collect some new yarn to knit these special mittens for yourself or a loved one.
