Static Mittens - Knitting Pattern
Alternating colours every stitch, the Static Mittens use both sides of the fabric to create a striped illusion pattern. Knitted using the stranded colourwork technique, the mittens are knitted flat and seamed down one side due to the way the yarns are twisted.
With step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions this pattern uses the following techniques: Long tail cast on, knit, purl, increasing, decreasing, stranded colourwork, picking stitches up and invisible seaming.
