A sturdy, felted mitten in three adult sizes for outdoor adventures -- includes six tech videos!

These mittens are named for the Selkirk mountains that surround Nelson, British Columbia, the venue for my Adventure Knitting camp 2017.

A speedy and warm mitten incorporating a number of interesting techniques: a ‘reducing’ waste yarn opening for the thumb, an un-fulled cuff (for maximum draft exclusion) and a tubular bind-off!

If you prefer to felt your mittens all at once (rather than adding the cuff after felting), an option for a felted gauntlet cuff has been included.

The mittens are customized for right and left hands at the felting stage.
