This Bernie knitted mittens pattern was inspired by those worn by Bernie Sanders at Joe Biden's Inauguration on January 20, 2021.

You have probably seen the photos of the fair isle mittens he wore already and the memes that followed.

This is an excellent project for anyone who loves working with stranded knitting and knitting in the round using the magic loop technique.

These mittens use four colors and are a really quick knit project, I made two in around 2-3 hours.
