These mittens were created for [L’Ourse Qui Danse] alpaca ranch, for their dyeing students to show off their work. Even if you don’t have dye class results to showcase, this is a good project for using up small amounts of fingering-weight yarn. The sample was knitted in 5 colours, but the pattern could be done in anything from 3-4 colours to 20. A pair of mittens will require about 260 yards of yarn in total.
Two pattern graphs in different sizes are provided, to give some flexibility in gauge and size. At the stated gauge, the smaller graph will give a 7-7 1/2" palm circumference, and the larger graph an 8-8/12" palm circumference.
