Made in Stroll Tonal Blue Violet and a bunch of scraps
But honestly, they took me awhile – mainly because once I finished with the bodies I had something like a billion ends to weave in. So I threw them in a corner until I was ready to face them. I mean I love how cute the colorwork mittens turn out but…the ends…
We got our early shipment in and all of us were instantly in love – I had so many ideas of things I want to make! But I ended up deciding on another SpillyJane pattern…and this went much quicker
I used the Swedish Fish pattern but decided to just use the bright & fun Lollipop colorway to create the colorful fishies without having ends to weave in.
I knew that because of all the colors in Lollipop, they wouldn’t all fit on one mitten so I would a bit off off of the ball in the opposite directlion so the striping would be opposite on each mitten
I used the Natural version of Chroma for the white part and made the thumbs in opposite colors. I don’t mind having mismatched mittens!
I’m absolutely crazy about this yarn – it’s so very soft & fuzzy (single ply) plus it stripes! Always a good thing in yarn in my opinion. I love that both the Worsted & the Fingering are in 100 grams balls too! I chose the worsted for yet another project and my queue is so long of things I want to make.
Also – naming these colorways was the most fun meeting I’ve had since I started working here – I hope you enjoy them too!
