This pattern was designed specifically for our Elora mini-skein sets, but would also be an excellent stash-busting project. The fingerless mitts feature corrugated ribbing, Fair-Isle patterns and simple shaping for the thumb gore. Little variations to the Fair-Isle motifs keep the pattern fun to knit, and the small size of the project makes it a good introduction to stranded two-colour knitting.
