a quick set of fraternal twins
Complementary colors create a vibrant contrast when placed together. The Complementary mittens are the perfect go-with-anything project. Knitting a hat? You need mittens with that. Knitting a cowl? You need some mittens. Choose two complementary colors for this complementary knit, and watch the yarn dance as you work the simple colorwork design. Knit the mittens identically, or as fraternal twins. Let your yarn guide you on a color wheel adventure.
