Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have ALL THE COLORS from your favorite leftover bits of yarn in a single project? Using less than 100 yards of each color, StarLite incorporates all of the neon colors I could lay my hands on, while gently blending and making them twinkle like starlight.

StarLite Mittens do not have to be made in neon colors, or even using as many colors as shown. Depending on your leftover bits of yarn and patience for weaving in ends, you can use any number of colors that you desire. The stitch pattern neatly blends and shows off the colors that you use, and you can vary the width and repeats of the stripes for even more options. Suggested stripe patterns are included. Suggested color combinations include rainbow, warm or cool colors, and multiple shades of the same color. Alternatively, you can use a single skein of one color for simple, textured mittens. Not only is StarLite graded from XS to Adult Large to give you the perfect fit, but instructions are also included for Newborn to Child sizes so your little one can have some happy colors to match! Adult sizes are designed to fit with neutral ease, and small human sizes are designed to fit with positive ease to give growing hands some room!
