Narwhal Mittens

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.

  • YARN

    I love the fabric that the squishy, sport weight Chickadee gives in stranded colourwork at this range of gauges but heavier DK or worsted weight yarns such as Quince and Co. Lark could be used if you prefer your mittens to be very dense or wish to make them larger than the largest size given.

    Outer: sport weight yarn in 2 colours: 175[200, 215]yds / 160[185, 200]m MC and 100[110, 120]yds / 95[100, 110]m CC. Shown in Quince & Co. Chickadee (100% wool, 181yds / 166m, 1.76oz / 50g) in MC - Peacock and CC - Leek.

    Lining: fingering / 4ply yarn: 200[215, 230]yds / 185[200, 215]m. Shown in Quince & Co. Tern (75% wool, 25% Silk, 221yds / 202m, 1.76oz / 50g) in Kelp.
