In Norse mythology one can read about Fylgja, which can be translated into “someone that accompanies”. Now, that story has a little more to it, since the Fylgja is a supernatural being or spirit which follows a person in connection to their fate…

But on cold Norwegian winters, a pair of mittens is definitely something that follows me around, if not in the spiritual sense.

This is a pair of, in spite of the cables, a quick knit. Especially if you go on YouTube and search for “Knitting cables without a cable needle”.

I designed this pattern with Moeke Yarn Elena in mind, but I´ve tried to list a few other possible yarns as well based on my test knitters yarn choices, since this particular yarn can be hard to come by.
