The pattern “Squirrelly Swedish Mittens”, is my first fair isles project. The pattern was designed by Elli Stubenrauch and can be found for free on Ravelry.com. I ordered the yarn from KnitPicks almost a year ago and I’ve finally gotten up enough courage to give the fair isles a try. I’m not sure why I waited so long, as it’s really not a hard technique to do. The only problem I’m having is pulling my yarn too snug and the stitches are puckering a bit. The mitten doesn’t look too bad when it’s on my hand. I think the second mitten looks a little better, but I’m still trying to get the hang of my tension.
