composed mitts Review by Lou

I haven't made these mitts yet, but I've ordered the yarn and plan on knitting them very soon.
I love the way they look with the stranding and colors.

Composed Mitts Review by Glenda Swinford

Beautiful mitts; beautiful pattern. The popcorn stitches on the first round of knitting are a bit of a challenge, but once complete, the rest is a snap. The vine section in the middle works up nicely with duplicate stitch for the little flowers or can be left out altogether for a shorter pair of mitts.
