These offering mitts, also known as “mitts with tongues,” “church mitts,” or “stubby mitts,” were a traditional hand covering in rural Norway. They are a variation of the fingerless gloves or mitts that are popular today.

Knit in the round on 5 double pointed needles in a geometric lacy pattern.

The mitts have a full thumb, palm and top like mittens but are open on the palm side of the fingers.
