This was my first stranded pattern and I might go back to it in order to practice knitting with yarns held both English and continental. I think it's a great pattern and there are so many projects, that there are lots of helpful notes and forum posts and such.
Fingerless mittens are good for early stranded projects because they're over fast! Here's another one that has even less colorwork. And one last cute one!
