These fresh, funky mitts make the most of a bright mini-skein set, using slipped stitches to create bold, graphic lines and highlight the thumb shaping against single-row stripes.

Inverting the direction in which the foreground colours run on each hand provides a subtle, look- again twist, with garter stitch finishes completing the modern, textural look.
