Frón is the fifth of five mitten patterns where the inspiration comes from Icelandic cross-stitch patterns from 15th to 18th century.
The colors I have used for this series of mittens are mostly earth tones and are inspired from an old cross-stitch wall-hanging from my grandparents house.
After experimenting different color combinations for this pattern, I decided to move away from the earth tones. .

The mittens are worked in the round from the bottom to top using 5 double pointed needles, followed by knitting the thumb using 4 double pointed needles.
Begin with needles US 1.5 (2.5 mm) and knit the edge and the first 22 rounds of the chart. Then change to needles US 2.5 (3 mm) until you finish the chart.

For a pair of mittens you will need 1 skein of each color.

Frón er fimmta vettlinga uppskriftin af fimm þar sem innblásturinn kemur frá íslenskum útsaums munstrum frá ca. 16. til 19. öld. Litirnir sem ég nota í þessari vettlinga línu eru að mestu jarðar tónar en þar studdist ég við liti í gömlu, útsaumuðu veggteppi sem hékk alltaf uppi á vegg hjá ömmu minni og afa en ákvað að fara aðra leið í litavalinu á þessum vettlingum.

Í uppskriftina eru notaðir 5 prjónar nr. 2.5 mm og fimm prjónar nr. 3 mm.

Kambgarn er notað í vettlingana. Ein dokka af hvorum lit.
