Mismatched mystery mittens! Two ornate keys fit into two different keyholes… a mix of modern graphic element, some art nouveau inspired accents, and traditional Scandinavian motifs.

Complete illustrated instructions and charts. Mitten is 9.5 inches from top to edge, and 4.3 inches wide. Thumbs are about 2.5 inches long.

Skills: cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease,stranded knitting, knit in the round using double pointed needles, pick up stitches, kitchener stitch, bind off.
Tools and Materials:
you will need:

Materials: 1 ball of Knit Picks Palette (or other fingering weight yarn) in Calypso Heather, 1 ball of Knit Picks Palette in Rose Hip (for pink and blue/green mittens)
Pink and black mittens use Knit Picks Palette in Black and Petal.

note: the pink and black mittens are an older draft, they show a few small differences- the charts you will receive match the green and pink mittens

(Each ball of Palette is 50 grams and 231 yards. 50 grams of yarn makes one pair of mittens… you won’t use an entire ball of each color).
