This is a fun and quick project for anyone wanting to try their hand at fairisle/stranded knitting.

These fingerless mittens are written in 2 palettes and 2 sizes. Perfect for those cold days when you need warmth, but still need to use your fingers. The warm, soft, pure Bluefaced Leicester yarn used to knit these mittens has been hand-dyed in colours created specifically for this pattern. The yarn is available in small 25g quantities to better suit small projects like this.

The motif is inspired by the form of the iris flower, and is named after the “Eramosa Skies” dwarf iris in my garden.
