So I've always been a bit afeared of stranded colourwork - too many threads and needles and with floats and tension to worry about it always seemed like a lot of trouble. But still it's important to learn new things and I wanted to do a design based on the tiles inside Manchester Town Hall which are in a two colour stepped chevron pattern. Whilst the pattern doesn't match up to the tiles in quite the way I wanted (insufficient steps) I quite like the end result.
I will write this pattern up when I get the chance and I think it will be in three sizes (small, medium and large). These mittens fit my paws snugly and will be the medium size.
