Everything comes in two’s in Double Rainbow! With Gauge Dye Works self-striping yarn you can make two pairs of mitts — one for you, one for your bestie. And you’ll hold two strands of yarn together to create gorgeous blended cable rainbows. Since the yarn is held double, the mitts are a super quick and satisfying knit. This pattern was a special collaboration with Gauge Dye Works — the yarn and pattern were designed for each other!
