This is a classically stranded, two coloured mittens pattern, beginning with a double ribbing and continuing with a stranded pattern resembling basalt pillars.
It is recommended to use two sharply contrasting colours; the more lightness (value) difference the colours show, the clearer the pattern emerges.

The pattern itself is inspired by those distinctive stones found at a lot of places around Iceland. I recommend to visit the gorgeous Hofsós swimming pool in North Iceland, where huge basalt pillars can be seen when taking a walk at the shoreline beneath the pool.
