A very close approximation to the traditional Lovikka Mittens from Sweden
These mittens are knitted on size 5mm needles, then brushed with a rough brush to create the halo, and finally embroidered with a decorative design on the folded cuffs.

The pattern ist very easy to follow but requires a little bit of experience or curiosity.

You will need to know (or learn) how to do a provisional CO and the afterthought method.

The embroidery is charted step by step
