These mittens are super quick and ideal for beginners to colourwork mittens. The pattern has row-by-row instructions not typically offered in most charted Norwegian patterns. Once you have made these, you should be able to knit colourwork mittens from a chart.

Speedy Spunni is the bonus pattern to kick off the third instalment of my Selbu Mitten Club. They are simple and unbelievably quick. The club will take you on journey from Aran, to DK, to Sport to Fingering weight mittens. Advancing your colourwork knitting skills for each upcoming pattern.
