These cheerful mitts were inspired by a recent trip to Scotland, while waiting for the ferry from Armadale to Mallaig. They are a simple knit, using one color at a time, with the stitch pattern creating the polka dot effect. The Armadale mitts are knit flat and seamed.  140 yards of fingering weight yarn in each color will be ample to knit a pair of these charming mitts! Gauge is 6 stitches per inch, measured over stockinette stitch, on size 3 needles (or size needed to achieve gauge).
