This was a mystery mitten pattern running from the 19th of November to the 3rd of December 2017.

Jul is the Scandinavian Christmas time, and kveld translates to evening. These mittens convey what that means to me. They are not overly festive in symbolism (so they can still be worn the rest of winter, and if you’re a bit of a Grinch), but they do carry some subtle Scandinavian jule-decor.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, this topic in my Ravelry group is the best place for support. Happy knitting!

Yarn
Rauma Finull (100% Norwegian wool, 175 m / 191 yds, 50 g). 120 m/131 yds colour 1 and colour 2, 40 m/44 yds colour 3.

You will get the best results if you use a fingerint to sport weight, non-superwash, woollen spun sheep’s wool yarn. Alternatives: Hillesvåg Ask or Vilje, Sandnes Tove, Jamieson’s Spindrift, Holst Supersoft etc.
