A great introduction to colorwork and stranding, these mitts are the perfect project for those mini skeins you’ve picked up as well as stash busting! Worked in the round with some stranded colorwork. Thumb gusset created with slip raised increase method for a smoother finish.

This pattern and my Fall Fade Mitts pattern were designed simultaneously in order to fully use five mini skeins from Thriving Hive Studio, resulting in two completely different pairs of fingerless mitts. If buying both patterns at the same time a discount will be given at checkout.
