Learn to knit stranded colorwork mitts using Ysolda’s lovely Milet Mittens pattern, featuring foldover cuffs in stitch patterns inspired by colourwork traditions from Norway, Estonia and Latvia. Ribbing is worked on the inside of the cuffs for a snug fit that will keep cold winds, or snow, out. The tops are completed with rounded shaping in a star or snowflake design inspired by the tops of Fair Isle tams.
