Designed to match the Mesabi Tam pattern available here, this pattern is suitable for the knitter with experience knitting mittens, reading a chart and stranded colorwork.

I used 1 skein each of Buckthorn, Lochan, Hirst, Birkin and Smirr. Please note, if you would like to make the matching tam, you will need 2 skeins of Buckthorn and possibly Lochan (I had enough with
one skein, but it was close) and 1 skein each of the other colors total.

Finished mitten is 7.5 inches in circumference and 10.5 inches from edge to tip. Ribbing accounts for 2.75 inches of length.
