I’ve always thought fairies are like mushrooms, you trip over them when you’re not thinking about them, but they’re hard to spot when you’re searching for them.
- Jo Walton

This is a pattern for a pair of mittens worked from the bottom up and in the round, using the stranded colourwork technique.

Yarn Kits are available from Gathered Sheep Yarns!

Stitches are cast on to work the folded picot edge and then joined before working the wrist and then mitten chart. There are charts for Left and Right mittens. Size is determined by the needle size.

On page 5 there is a basic instruction for how to work a lining for your mittens, if you desire. As seen in the yarn amounts, you will need an additional 55g ball, if you choose to line your mittens.

In addition, if you would prefer to work a provisional cast-on, rather than a long-tail, to join the folded hem, do that! You will need a crochet hook and waste yarn for this.
