This #KWBuildingBlocks pattern is one of the only mitten patterns you'll ever need! Laid out a little differently than our other Kelbourne Woolens designs, this pattern is a little more word-heavy and breaks down some of the intermediate-level techniques in order to make the knitting easy and enjoyable. The hope is that you not only learn something along the way, you end up with a fabulous pair - or pairs! - of mittens as well.

Three versions are designed in order of difficulty:
Mitten A is a simple pair of stockinette stitch mittens featuring a K1, P1 Ribbing at the cuff and "sore thumb" construction.
Mitten B has the same cuff and thumb construction as Version A, but is worked in a classic broken ribbing pattern.
Mitten C kicks it up a notch and features a classic Setesdal inspired stranded colorwork pattern.
