Dracula's Lair are a pair of stranded colorwork mittens inspired by the classic 1931 black-and-white horror movie Dracula starring Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula himself.
Pick two colors of fingering-weight yarn with a good amount of contrast between them. Black and white is a classic combination for a reason but you can also use color.
Each mitten has its own motif; right and left mittens are worked from separate colorwork charts. The pattern comes in three sizes: 66, 70, or 74 sts. Helpful tips for managing long floats in colorwork are offered within the pattern.
This pair of colorwork mittens was originally released as a mystery knitalong in October 2019.
