The Brickazag pattern is inspired by the chevron brick patterns used locally to pave driveways.
Knitted in the round, these Brickazag Mitts have thumb gussets and corrugated ribs with lice for extra interest. Instructions for left and right mitts are identical; the stripe above and below the thumb prevents a pattern jog at the beginning of the round.
Written instructions for general construction only. The corrugated rib, Brickazag stranded pattern and thumb gusset are charted. Tutorials are included for a German Twisted Cast-on as well as Lifted Increases.
Pattern layout options are included for both A4 and letter size papers.
