A pair of colourwork Daleks fight it out on these toasty stranded mittens!

In addition to stranded colourwork, skills used in this pattern include knitting in the round, tacking down long floats, grafting or Kitchener stitch, and duplicate stitch.
If you are new to stranded knitting, I recommend starting with the co-ordinating INSULATE! hat, which is simpler.

Materials: DK-weight yarn in two colours. Approximately 150 yards of your main/background colour, and 90 yards of your contrasting colour.

Sizing: To fit women’s medium, or 7.5” palm circumference. Other sizes can be made by adjusting your gauge (changing needle size and/or yarn thickness).

Pattern is for personal use only.
