Stranded colourwork is used in these warm and multipurpose mittens.

Fair isle colourwork is a traditional technique which involves knitting with 2 colours, always stranding the unused shade across the back of work. It was developed on one of the most remote Scottish Islands as a way of using up shorter
scraps of yarn while simultaneously creating a thicker warmer fabric.

If its your first time, this simple pattern is easy to memorise, making a great opportunity to try out the skill for yourself.
