These mittens (or fingerless mitts) are designed to accompany a hat based on a whorl1 made by the Sami people of the Artic Scandinavian region. Noall’te is the Sami word for spindle whorl. The mitts use a traditional Scandinavian shape. The example is knit in natural, undyed shades, perfectly reminiscent of this stone whorl made by the Sami.

Materials:
• 100 yards of two different colors of Classic Elite MountainTop Vista (50% wool, 50% alpaca) or other worsted yarn (color A and color B).
• US size 8 5mm needles for knitting in the round. • Tapestry needle.
• Smooth waste yarn or stitch holders.

Techniques:
Knit in the round, decreases, stranded colorwork from chart, kitchener stitch.

Thanks to technical editor Steph Boardman, photographer Kathryn Walbert, and my wonderful test knitters!
