These Norse style mittens are inspired by the works of the Japanese artist Hiroshige.

They are recommended for more advanced knitters since there is some stranded knitting with three colours involved.

The different sizes are achieved through a gauge change. The needles and gauge specified are for the medium size (womans large/mens small).

You will need about 50 grams of both the dark and light blue and about 35 grams of white.

Pattern includes instruction on the picot hem and thumb construction. There are charts for the colourwork pattern.
