Ribbing is worked on the inside of the cuffs for a snug fit that will keep cold winds, or snow, out. The thumbs are worked using the method traditionally found on Selbu mittens from Norway, a relatively small gusset is worked and similar numbers of stitches are put on hold and cast on to bridge the gap before continuing the hand. The tops are completed with rounded shaping in a star or snowflake design inspired by the tops of Fair Isle tams. A miniature version is worked on the thumbs. This shaping means that the only real difference in the hands is the way the patterns line up—if you’re in a hurry they’ll be perfectly comfortable on the “wrong” hand. The repetitive lice pattern used for the majority of the mittens is easy to keep track of without paying attention to the chart so they work up relatively quickly.

We have a kit available for purchase.
