I used 15 colors of Palette from Knit Picks, 3,5mm needles.

For a first intarsia projet, it was hard. Link is ok but Zelda looks a little weird.

Notes about the construction:
CO 48. Work 1 herringbone braid. 1 white round. Work the heart chart. 1 white round with 6 increases. Second herringbone braid.
Start the mitten. The background is: 2 rows main color, r3= 1mc, 1bc. r4=1bc, 1mc.
I made a double increase for the thumb every 2 rounds until there is 15 sts increased (when the thumb was worked I picked up 4 more sts.)
For the top, I worked 2 double decreases every round.

If you want to try and have some questions (I know that my notes are not completes), I will be happy to help.

  1. C'est tres jolie, en plus c'est pas mal pour ton premier project intarsia(as you can see français is not my first language). Im currently working a mickey mouse chart for the first time and I'm a little lost. For the Zelda chart did you gauge with the mitten yarn or all the yarn you used for the Zelda characters? I know gauging with all the differnet yarn sounds wacko but theres no such thing as a dumb question,right?lol

  2. Thanks for your comments, your french is very good!
    For the gauge, I'm really too lazy to calculate it using the chart, I only calculated it with the mitten yarn. the intarsia part is a little more tight than the mitten, so I casted-on a little more stitches that I would normally do, so my mittens are not too small.
    an exemple: with my gauge, I calculated that the zelda chart would be 2,5'' wide, but it ended 2,25'' wide, because of the tighter gauge of the intarsia part.
