Twined Knitting Mitten

These mittens are inspired by a pair of mittens I found in the “Moenchguter Heimatmuseum” (= museum of local history) in Goehren on the island of Ruegen in Germany. You can see the original mittens on the last photo.

The pattern is based on traditional Selbu mittens from Norway, with a mix of different patterns from old Selbu gloves.

Ravelry: Rigmors Selbu mittens, pair pattern by Rigmor Duun Grande (would be pretty in brown and pink or red and pink yarns.

Hattifatteners are characters by Finnish artist Tove Jansson.
