Some knitters have chosen to use a space-dyed yarn for the background shading rather than the multiple colors listed in the pattern. These mittens are meant to be knitted firmly for warmth. Gauge: 9 sts and 9 rounds/inch. Color charts, glossary, and reading list included.

Some knitters use a spaced-dyed yarn instead of the seven background colors, thus working only with two yarns.
