There are a simple pair of two color fair isle mittens on knitty LIttle
Pink Mittens It's easier to start with two colors to get the hang of not having floating threads in the back. The video that Jan linked to is wonderful! I'd never seen that before. I loved fair isle and hope when I finish all these darn scoggers (medieval arm warmers) that I can get on to some mittens I want to do. Don't get stressed about it if you do end up with floaters. They can be a bit annoying, but they won't show on the front. The nice thing about weaving your stitches in is that your floaters won't make your work all tight as they sometimes can.
