Narwhal Mittens

Colourwork mittens with narwhals
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.
