Did you fall victim for the mid 2000’s craze for space dyed sock yarn? Do you have a metric ton of cool space dyed-yarn but not enough to do anything with? This pattern is a blank for you to design your own mittens—men’s, women’s, kid’s. Make them as complicated or as basic as you like, lots of colors or just two! Print off as many copies of
Pages 2 and 3 as you want and start drawing—fair isle, simple stripes or draw your own pictures, animals, flowers, anything you like!
You can work these with lined cuffs (I recommend part silk for softness) and they’re designed long enough so you can tuck them up under your coat sleeves.
I’ve included directions for “traditional” cuffs also. Advice on carrying colors, with pictures, available
