From the Nordsjøen Mitten Collection, this mitten design is the second to be made available as an individual pattern.

Maritime and knitting traditions of the North go hand in hand. What better way to showcase this long-existing connection than knitting colorwork mittens in the Norwegian style of ‘Selbuvotter’, graced with themes of seafaring symbolism: knotwork and secrets forever held by the big blue?

The Norwegian word, ‘knyttet, means “knotted”, and this mitten’s design does, indeed, knot, or tie, together its own unique sequence of meaningful elements.

This gorgeous 6-page digital booklet includes comprehensive written instructions and beautiful chart lay-outs for its individual right and left hand motifs and shares the lore behind the Knyttet mitten’s elemental features.
