STROBILUS is a fun project to practice your colourwork skills. The mittens are worked bottom-up in the round using two colours. The pattern is easy to remember and you only have to weave in a few floats on the thumb gusset. Choose two shades from De Rerum Natura’s vast colour palette and get playin’!
