These mittens are seriously cosy, knitted in Blacker Swan Falkland Islands wool DK, which sooo soft! The pattern came about by mistake when I was charting an old vintage chevron pattern and messed it up, so I flipped it over and ended up with this.
The pattern is a simple two-colour Fair Isle design which is fun to create and is charted. The mittens are knitted in the round, increasing for the thumb, which is then added on afterwards.
Women’s Small, Women’s Large and Men’s Large.
