Kvello is the fourth and final pattern in the Selbu mitten club. This pattern has the most intricate chart of them all, but follows the same construction method as its predecessors. So what you get is a relatively quick and easy to make, but impressive looking, pair of mittens. I will readily admit that these are my favourite mittens in the club.

‘Kvello’ is an area in Selbu that has one of the oldest farm houses in Selbu built on it. The name seemed fitting as the mittens have a very traditional look aesthetic that is reminiscent of the floral folk art of rosemaling.

If you need any help with this pattern then this topic in my group is the best place for support.

Thank you so much for taking part in this journey with me! I could never put into words how much it has meant.
