Frysa Mitts

Frysa is a set of two wintry colorwork accessories inspired by cold Northern winters, dark nights, and the ethereal glow of the Northern lights. Frysa is Swedish for ’to freeze’… but I hope you won’t freeze in these warm accessories!

Frysa Mitts are a pair of fingerless mitts worked in stranded colorwork in three colors of DK-weight yarn. The mitts are worked from the cuff up in the round. Right and left mitts are worked as mirror images of each other.

Worked in rustic DK-weight yarn, these winter accessories are quick to knit and marvelously warm. The colorwork pattern is not challenging since at most two colors are used per row. However, the colorwork does contain some long floats that need to be caught.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. The stranded colorwork pattern is charted only.
