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

Yarn kits from Gathered Sheep Yarns!

Stitches are provisionally cast on, before working Tvinnarand braid/plait, the wrist, and then mitten chart. Then you will rejoin lining yarn and work lining in stockinette following your mitten and chart (in a needle 1 size smaller than you used for outer mitten).

If you would rather not work the lining, cast on sts and then work a 4 - 8 rounds of rib before working braid and charts (you may want to use the Ladderback, also called, Invisible Jacquard) technique. There is an explanation with sample and image on page 6 to help you with this technique.

There are charts for Left and Right mittens. Size is determined by the needle size (a chart with a slightly larger thumb width is also included, if needed). Lighter Mitten charts are on pages 8 - 12, if these work better with your printer or viewing platform.
