It took me quite a while to get these mitts right. I had the original idea back in March 2014. At that time it just didn’t work, but I had an idea what to do in order to actually make it work. However, it took me a while to start them again. I started again late in 2016 - and finished them in January 2017. Then it took me another nine months to write up the pattern … but here they are.

The Helgoland mitts have a unique construction. They are started at the thumb, and afterwards knitted flat and in garter stitch. One mitt is knitted in one piece which minimizes the number of ends to weave in :)

A Danish version of this pattern has been written by MarianneHo. Mange tak!
