Planning a Stranded Mitten Pattern, Part 2

Filed under: Crafting, Knitting Patterns — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 6:42 PM

I’ve taken a look at some of the stranded mitten patterns available online (thanks Ravelry!) and I think I’ve found the proportions I want, and a chart I can wipe clean and fill in with my own pattern. It will definitely be enough of a chart for me to knit off of, but if I ever plan to publish the pattern, I’ll need to redo the chart in a way that’s actually chart-like, and not just colour-coded (which, though easier to read in my opinion, is just not how it’s done). Frankly, I chart my cables with colour coding, too…

I think I’ve settled on doing ribbed cuff mittens, not the straight-sided ones, since I think it’s actually what Bear would prefer (despite what my aesthetic sense feels about it). When I make my own stranded mitts (I have Patons wool/angora/bamboo yarn waiting patiently in my stash in a pale blue and a pinky red), I can make them however I want!
