The result is a warm, cozy, and comforting accessory!

Follow along with the pattern—or cast on with our companion class [Stacked Stitches: Knitting in Wild Color](https://mybluprint.com/playlist/11636/22361?t=0) —and learn how to create interesting shapes by increasing or decreasing your stack. There are no floats and only one color per row, so you can learn this fun technique quickly and easily!

  • Fingerless mittens have always been a fun accessory, but in the age of the smartphone they’re a downright necessity. This colorwork kit comes with dynamic yarns and a surprisingly simple how-to: the slip-stitch mitts are knitted flat, then seamed up the side with a hole for the thumb.
