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.
