These are easily my favourite mittens from The Selbu Mitten Club III, and quite possible out of all the clubs. The main motif is one of the more unusual Selbu Mitten motifs, but it’s unmistakably a Selbu mitten, with its striped cuff, thumb gusset and geometric palm pattern. The great detail is achieved by finer yarn and thinner needles.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support. Happy knitting!
