Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, is a beautiful, almost mythical phenomenon made even more special because it occurs in areas where not many people live, like Alaska and North Dakota. If you don’t happen to live one of those remote places, you can just knit yourself some Northern Lights mittens instead! A ribbon runs up the back of these, much like the Northern Lights create ribbons across the sky. A Northern-Light-colored yarn just makes the mittens that much better.

Skills Needed: knitting in the round on double pointed needles, M1R and M1L increases, picking up stitches, basic decreases, working right and left twists, Kitchener stitch.
