A fun and easy design to add a pop of colour to dark days. The mittens are worked in stranded stockinette to prevent cold hands during adventures in the wild. Take advantage of Jamieson & Smith’s wide colour range and work in high contrast colours as I did or make a muted version with different shades of the same colour. The pattern looks great with gradients, too!

Errata: There is one small mistake in the pattern. In Row 52, you will have 72sts on the needles, not 73 as stated in the pattern. 28sts in pattern, 17sts between markers (gusset), 27sts after second marker. Thank you klakla for pointing this out!
