  • Because of the stranded colorwork, these mittens are not as stretchy as others you may have made.
  • Keep your tension loose.  Stranded colorwork knitting can pull in and become inelastic without enough slack in the floats (strands on the back of the work).  When in doubt, make the floats looser than you think they should be. 
  • In order to avoid long floats, which may catch your fingers, twist the float together with the working yarn when it extends farther than about 5 stitches.
  • Slip all slipped stitches as if to purl with yarn to wrong side of work.
