You will need one skein of each color to complete these fingerless mittens. The new pattern (which was originally published in Alt Fiber by Shannon Okey, Ten Speed Press, 2008) features an added thumb increase for ease of fit. This was not in the original pattern. The gauntlets can be knitted with any fingering weight yarn.
