“Megin” in Old Norse means strength – might – power. The ability to clothe ourselves, and the ones we love, is an incredible power. Whether you taught yourself how to knit, or it was passed down to you from family or friend, you are now able to create something tangible through your perseverance and determination.

These mittens are knit in the round as one piece, and the thumb is worked last in the round.
Video instruction for this thumb technique can be found here:

Charts, as well as written instructions, are available for the colorwork. Written instructions are on a separate PDF.
