Created to compliment Lyrical Knits’ Fractured Fairy Tale Hat and cowl, these mittens are worked in 2-color stranded color work in the round. Two sizes in two lengths are offered in heavy sportweight/light DK yarn, but further adjustments in sizing can be achieved by altering the gauge with either needle size and/or weight of the yarn.

A KAL for any of the Fractured Fairy Tale accessories is in progress here:)

The negative-to-positive patterning of the pinwheel-floral design makes keeping your hands warm a little more fun this winter, and the construction of the thumb gore ensures that the mitten won’t twist towards the palm when wearing.
