Summary

Skill Level: Intermediate

The color oozes in this funky pattern perfect for just about anyone.

You can use either a solid color or variegated yarn to create the fair isle pattern.

This pattern may look spontaneous and difficult, but it is really easy and is a great introduction to fair isle crochet since it only uses two colors throughout.

(All measured around the palm right below where fingers meet.

Small Mitts: 7.5” around x 6.5 tall
Medium Mitts: 8” around x 7” tall
Large Mitts: 8.5” around x 7.5 tall

The pattern uses Fair Isle crochet which creates a double thick fabric for extra warmth.

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don't know how to do Fair Isle? Don't worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this:

1. Color Changing throughout the mitts including at the round join.
2. Catching the yarn to create short floats.
3. How to keep your yarn untangled.
4. How to keep your seam straight and invisible on your mitts.

The mitts include full written instructions as well as a color chart for the Fair Isle portion.
Video tutorials on fair isle are available on my website.​
