Narwhals might seem mythically strange, and explorers once sold their tusks as "authentic unicorn horns", but they're real whales. They can be found inside the arctic circle and now they can keep your hands cosy in temperatures they'd be perfectly at home in. Traditional Selbuvotter mitten patterns on the cuffs and palms combine with fun details like the fish on the thumbs and, of course, the narwhals.
Worked in the round. Mittens are made with a folded hem, lining is picked up and knitted in once the mitten is finished.
15[14, 13]sts and 15[14, 13]rows = 2" / 5cm in stranded colour work in the rnd with larger needles.
Finished palm circumference of approx 8[8¾, 91/4]" / 20.5[22, 23.5]cm, choose a size with approx 1" / 2.5cm of positive ease.
