These colourful stranded colourwork mitts are companions for the Morowa Cowl. The design is inspired by patterns from Kente fabrics. The pattern was originally released as part of the Brambles & Me 2020 Advent Yarn Calendar. The pattern is fairly easy to follow and will knit up quickly, so makes a good project for gift knitting. Have fun and play around with colours to create your own unique mitts.

Pattern Notes
You will work 36 rows of the chart using your own colours or Bramble & Me colours. Each contrast colour will be worked for 1 rnd, then changed to next colour. Due to the number of ends, I would suggest weaving ends as you go along. Alternatively, you can create your own tonal gradient or colour sequence using 8-row pattern repeat to produce less ends for weaving in.
