Years ago, my DH’s grandmother, Aili, got a pair of mittens as a Christmas gift. They were knitted in mosaic pattern in light blue and white, and I thought they were one of the prettiest mittens I had ever seen. I examined the mittens closely, and decided to knit them for myself.

Modifying the pattern for your size is very easy, they knit up fast, they are really warm and practically every color combination works. The mosaic pattern looks like stranded knitting, but is in fact achieved by knitting every row with only one color and slipping stitches. This pattern is intended for all skill levels.
