The Milet Mittens are stranded colourwork mittens with folder cuffs featuring stitch patterns inspired by colourwork traditions from Norway and Latvia. Ribbing is worked on the inside of the cuffs for a snug fit that will keep cold winds and snow out. This pattern by Ysolda Teague will teach you Fair Isle or stranded knitting, how to catch floats, the idea of yarn dominance, how to manage your colors without tangles, and gusseted thumb construction. It's the perfect project to learn or master stranded colorwork, and probably the prettiest mitten I've ever seen!
