Vidar half-mitts are inspired by the construction and patterning traditionally used in mittens and gloves in Selbu, Norway. Vidar’s characteristics and motifs include a men’s cuff, a star, a spider, spruce twigs, lightning and a spitball patterned palm.

Many thanks to Anne Bardsgard for her book, Selbu Mittens, published by Trafalgar Square Books of North Pomfret, Vermont.

Pattern requires the following skills: working in the round in small circumferences, increasing and decreasing, stranded knitting in two colors.

Approximate amounts of yarn needed:
Small - MC:152yds/139m, 40g, CC:95yds/87m, 25g
Medium - MC:171yds/156m, 45g, CC:103yds/94m, 27g
Large - MC:190yds/175m, 50g, CC:110yds/101m, 29g

Yarn quantities include extra yarn for swatching.

Note about sizing:
Vidar Half-Mitts were designed with 0”/0cm of ease to make it easier for the wearer to use their fingers and thumbs. Measure around the palm of the dominant hand, just below the knuckles, excluding the thumb.
