I love making bright wintery accessories to cheer up what often seems like an endless stream of grey days and dark, sober clothing. These little handcoverings function as an instant antidote to the winter blahs, with their rose-inspired stranded motif a reminder of the spring to come.

Instructions are provided for both an open-handed mitt and gloves, choose the coverage (or project intricacy) that suits you best. Both gloves and mitts are knit entirely in the round, requiring no seaming and minimal finishing. Skills required beyond basic knit and purl include increasing, decreasing, and reading a basic color chart.
