Selbu Style Half-Mitts
Logan Half-Mitts are worked with construction and patterning developed and traditionally used for mittens and gloves in Selbu, Norway. Logan includes a men’s cuff, clover, a deer, a spruce twig, a spider and a patterned palm. Many thanks to Anne Bårdsgård for her book, Selbu Mittens, published by Trafalgar Square Books of North Pomfret, Vermont. Pattern requires the following skills: working in the round in small circumferences, increasing and decreasing, stranded knitting in two colors.
Small (Medium, Large); S (M, L)
Circumference: 8 1/2”/21.5cm (8 3/4”/22cm, 9 1/2”/24cm), Approximate Length: 8”/20cm (8”/20cm, 8 1/4”/21cm)
Sizes shown are hand circumference with 0”/0cm ease. Measure around the palm of dominate hand, just below the knuckles, excluding thumb.
