This is a super-simple easy colorwork mitt that is easily modified. Make sure to try on the mitt early to make sure it fits. Different yarns, in combination with stranded colorwork, can make for differing amounts of stretchiness and give. If you knit more tightly, try using bigger needles.

I used Lion Brand Superwash Merino Cashmere for this, but any worsted weight yarns will do. You can make do with around 50 yards of the primary color, and a bit less of the secondary color.

Other sizes can be made by adding or subtracting stitches from the count in multiples of 2. The pattern calls for 34 stitches for a small/medium size. 36-38 would be medium, and 40-42 large.

This is my first ever knitting pattern, so please let me know if I screwed something up! :)

Note: my hands are smaller than average for a woman, so I would advise sizing up if you have average or larger hands, or if you want them to be less snug.
