Lily Mittens-Knit Now #45

Knit Now Magazine hosts a regular Designer Challenge feature, in which designers are asked to come up with designs for a particular yarn on a tight timeline, to see what they can dream up.

My answer was to create this stranded-knit pair of mittens for Knit Now, and the pattern is out today in issue #45, (which is, by the way, bigger and better than ever) available online at this link.

Winter's far from over yet, so why not knit up a quick and bright treat for yourself? Nothing like playing with colour to make up for dreary grey days while waiting for Spring to finally arrive!
