My Squirrelly Swedish Mittens

4 Mar

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  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.
