These mittens knit up really quickly. Alternating two colours and knitting on a fairly small needle for the chunkiness of the yarn makes for a really warm mitten that blocks the wind.

This is a great starter pattern for anyone wanting to try Fair Isle knitting for the first time.

4.5 mm & 5.5 mm Double Pointed Needles
