Yarn: I used just under half a skein of each colour (around 110 yards)

This pattern came into being when my friend JackFrost came back from a holiday in Norway determined to make some Norwegian-style mittens with hares on them.

The design went through a lot of different versions before I settled on this exact pattern. The inspiration for various elements came from the stunning Somerset levels where I grew up (hence the name!)

I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I did!
