Note on Construction: These mitts are “faux” fairisle. The finished pattern looks like each row was knit using two colors, but the colorwork pattern is actually created by knitting with just one color of yarn and strategically slipping sts. Enjoy watching the colorwork pattern unfold while knitting each row with just one strand of yarn!

Pattern is 4 pages long and includes easy to follow directions. Additional step-by-step instructions and pictures are provided for confusing areas.

Techniques used: Knit, purl, M1L, M1R, k2tog, p2tog, picking up stitches, and working in a round.
