Larraine found this easy, free pattern for stranded mittens, by Melissa Anderson. It’s one of the many knitting tributes to Bernie Sanders’ famous mittens, but the mittens are pretty great, whether you enjoyed the meme or not.
Larraine used Estelle Chunky to make her version of the mitts. For one pair of mittens, the pattern requires one skein of the main colour, and smaller amounts of three other colours.
This would be a great pattern to use up scraps of leftover chunky yarn. Alternatively, you could make multiple pairs of mittens from full skeins of the same four colours, changing which colour is the main colour for each pair.
