This kit includes the pattern and all 8 yarns necessary to knit this pair of mittens.
These mittens are knitted circularly from cuff to tip and are designed in the classic style of the two-color Selbu Mittens of 19th century Norway: ribbing, a large star motif (known in Norway as an “eight blade rose”), pointed tips, “seam” stitches, and different small motifs on the palm, thumb gusset, and thumb. The addition of many colors makes these mittens more fun to knit. Only the background colors (CC) change, as seen in some items in the Scottish Fair Isle tradition, while the pattern color (MC) remains the same! The yarns included are Brown Sheep Nature Spun sport weight yarns (100% wool). The gauge is 9 sts and 9 rounds/inch. These mittens are knitted tightly to be warm. Suggested needle sizes: US 1 and 2 (2.25 and 2.75mm). Finished Size: 8” long plus 3” cuff, 8.5” in circumference above the thumb.
Care: Handwash and lay flat to dry. These yarns are NOT superwash.
