My First Chart

I printed off some knitter's graph paper and have been playing around with some charting for a mitten pattern of my own design.

This will be the back of the hand:

I plan to do the palm in alternating vertical rows of color. Right now I can't decide if I want to do black mittens with the pattern in red . . .


red mittens with the pattern in white......

What do you think??

Here's the pattern for the wrist area:

I will likely use the Latvian 2-color cast on and do a fringed edge with a braided band above it before beginning the wrist pattern. If I don't think the wrist is long enough, I can add another braid before starting the main heart pattern.

Not sure who the receipient will be. It will be fun to see how it looks knit up. I may find I have to adjust the chart. We'll see. It's kind of cool though!

Oh wow! That's very creative! I don't even know what colors would be good together! What are the school colors where Amanda will be going?

BTW: I'm feeling much better now. Ryan and I are headed for Des Moines this morning for the final State Fair event. We'll have plenty of time to talk on the way and he stopped by yesterday.
