Showcasing traditional Christmas colours was only fitting for our last mitten pattern in our 12 Months of Mitten Series! This pattern and colour combination was inspired by all of the festive decorations that come out this time of year.
While I don’t always use green and red in my home over the holidays, I still think this colour combination is symbolic of Christmas. However, you can also use other winter-inspired colours like white and blue or gold and white. Whatever you feel will get you in a festive holiday mood!
How we used traditional Christmas colours for this pattern
The entire mitten is stitched with alternating double Nobuko with metallic accents throughout. There is no differentiation for the cuff but you could easily add a slanted Gobelin to create the appearance of a cuff.
Susan used a combination of size 5 Perle cotton in Colour #18 (greens) and Colour #31 (green/pink/red). The metallic is a red Kreinik braid.
While the colours chosen for this pattern reflect the traditional Christmas colours of red and green, the different shades of pink and the metallic accents take this pattern to the next level!
So, we have come to the end of our mitten series. Have you enjoyed it? You will find all the mittens under Twelve Months of Mittens in categories so make sure you check them out.
I hope so as I have exciting news. In 2023, you will see MORE mittens! I’ve been busy stitching!
While the mittens were inspired by this series, many of the mittens will feature not one BUT a variety of stitches. AND of course each are colourful – no surprise here!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Susan for stitching this mitten AND for inspiring ME to stitch more!
