Colors are alphabetical in the order they were used. (A B C D)I wrote this row-by-row, so it
s pretty straight forward. The colors change a lot.Be careful when working the chart, as the pattern is stranded/fair isle; you
ll wantto pay close attention to be sure you don
t knit the snowflake stitches too tightly;if you do, you won
t gain the proper width. I knotted and trimmed ends ratherthan weaving them in.
These mittens came out to *about* 8
around and 7.5
long. They aren
t long atthe wrists, sitting just-so at the wrist, so if you want more of a cuff, purl morerows at the beginning of the pattern. For a tighter cuff, start with a couple lessstitches.
