My Dear Mittens

mittens-blog
I’ve a new mitten pattern ready for sale, these are “My Dear Mittens”, a play on words and a design inspired by my yarn store Dýr Yarns. The basic shape of these mittens are inspired by the Selbu mittens of Norway. Selbu mittens have a long history in Norway, often knitted for loved ones and sweethearts, full of symbolism and tradition. I’ve long been inspired by the knitting of the scandinavian countries,so it seemed apt that the first pattern designed exclusively for the website should be a traditional scandinavian one. These mittens are knitted in Flora, a lovely 4lpy alpaca blend from Norwegian yarn company Drops. These are a great winter to spring mitten that will keep you warm on frosty mornings. If you fancy knitting a pair for yourself head over to http://www.dyryarns.co.uk to pick up a copy of the pattern.
