The Lindgren mittens are as Nordic as they come.

They take their name and inspiration from Swedish children’s author Astrid Lindgren whose works lit up my childhood. The mittens are as playful and delightful to knit as Lindgren’s books are to read.

The mitts use three colours of a warm double-knitting yarn, though never more than two colours per row.

The Lindgren mitts are companions to the Astrid hat. Anyone wanting to knit a matching set will get a £1 discount applied at the checkout.

Yardage (for mitts):
Main colour: approx 150 yds
Contrast colour 1: approx 80 yds
Contrast colour 2: approx 80 yds

The pattern is sized for three adult hands and contains information on how to upsize/downsize it. It also outlines how to convert the mittens into fingerless mitts.
