Fullbright is fast, fluorescent and fingerless! Inspired by twilight bike rides, this pattern uses bold geometric motifs and bright, high contrast colours in a fitted fingerless mitten that will catch in the headlights of oncoming traffic.

Knit with Uptown Worsted, a premium 100% acrylic anti-pill yarn, these mittens will wear as hard as you ride and stay just as bright no matter how many washes you send them through. Featuring crazy neon colorways at an affordable price, pick up two bright skeins of this stuff and you’ll have enough to make two pairs of mittens.

Fullbright is written visually through a series of easy-to-follow charts in two sizes - Small/Large. You’ll have to be comfortable with doing stranded colorwork in the round before you start this project and be careful with your gauge. The size can be adjusted further by going up or down a needle size as needed.
