The April Showers mittens feature — what else? — umbrellas, and are a pretty easy way to get your feet wet (sorry) with color knitting if you’ve never tried it before.
I love the little details on this pattern, such as seed bead raindrops on the back of the hands. Because the umbrella is only on one side, you have to carry the color around the palm, making that part of the mitten extra warm.
