Tulip Mittens, a Fair Isle / Norwegian / Turkish stranded knitting design

Tulip Mittens, fair isle ladies' mittens knit in shetland spindrift yarn

I knit my ladies’ Tulip Mittens in 3 shades of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift jumper weight wool –  two 25g balls for the medium blue, “Merlin”, one ball of the light “Natural White” and one ball of the dark “Prussian Blue”.  If you’d like the kit (printed pattern plus 4 balls of Spindrift in colors shown), you can find it here on my Kidsknits.com site I think there are countless possibilities for other color combinations, too, so if you’d like to play around with some light, medium and dark shades in your stash, here’s the link to the pattern PDF ($6) on Ravelry.com.  Hope you like ’em!
