Swedish Skull and Crossbones Mittens

My brother is going to Sweden on an exchange, and asked me to knit him this pair of skull and crossbones mittens. I was really pleased because I've been wanting an excuse to make them, but it's definitely not cold enough in Melbourne for mittens. The pattern is from Hello Yarn and best of all, it's free! This is my first try for fair isle, and it's pretty tricky, I'm struggling a bit striking the balance between pulling too tight and leaving things a bit bumpy and loose. Oh well, I have a whole second mitten to perfect it on.
