Rósir, Grýla Collection
Traditional mittens & Colors of Iceland

There are many different types of mittens in Iceland. Nordic-style mittens were very popular in older times, knitted with fine handspun Icelandic wool often in two colors, white and black or white and brown. Knitted in an array of colors inspired by Icelandic nature, the Rósir mittens with their simple rose pattern have a refreshingly modern flair. They are worked in the round from the bottom up in stranded knitting with and elegant lace cuff and an afterthought thumb and the tip is shaped with symmetrical decreases.

You can achieve more sizes by changing needle size (2,25 to 3,25 mm / US 1 to 3 are suitable sizes) and adjust length by adding or removing rnds above and under the rose motif (rnds 53-65).

The pattern includes step by step pictorial tutorials for special techniques.
The lace cuff has charted and written instructions.

Yardage: see pattern’s website for the different colors.
