Mittens, Mittens Everywhere...........
The red pair of mittens are now finished and I'm so pleased with them. I just love working this rib.
But, on the second blue pair, I wanted to see what they'd look like if I reversed the colors somewhat.
The color that I knitted in the first pair, I purled in this blue mitten. The purled stitches hide more in the background, while the knitted stitches come to the front.
I also removed the lime green and replaced it with red. A corrugated rib is quite fun to knit and you can experiment with various colors and make each set unique.
Remember tho, this type of ribbing has very little stretch so I had to cast on extra stitches to compensate and then once the ribbing was completed, I decreased on the last row above it to accomodate what the pattern was calling for.
