Sneak Peek


You will learn how to follow a colourwork chart, carry two yarns at the same time and keep an even tension, understand the anatomy of a hand-knitted mittenm, manage circular knitting of tiny circumference thumbs, and how to shape the finished mitten

Traditional Selbu mittens, with their distinctive vertical column of fairisle snowflakes, first appeared nearly 200 years ago. Now you can take your own Nordic stranded colourwork journey with this 3-part class in Norwegian Mitten Knitting.
