Stranded colour work effect, without the effort!

The funky ‘Deco Mitts’ by Dagmar Mora are a great pair of hand warmers to accessorise your outfit. With all the appearance of stranded colour work, these mitts are actually created using chevrons and stripes, making them faster and easier.

They are a great way to use up two semi-solid skeins. Either go muted and subdued with neutrals or turn up the volume with pencil brights. Ideally, a sock suitable blend with nylon is best for this pattern, as you’ll need something hard wearing to cope with the fact you’ll never have these babies off!

What would you knit yours in?
