Hello fellow knitter! Colder weather is imminent and I for one need to get my hands cosy whilst still being able to use my fingers for typing and knitting and whatnot. So, I whipped up this fingerless mitt pattern, using a traditional Norwegian thumb gusset, and borrowing some old Norwegian pattern repeats for the palm.

The back side of the hand depicts a tree that gave me associations to the Tree of Gondor, and by extension the Tree of Life – Yggdrasil – in Norse Mythology.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, this topic in my Ravelry group is the best place for support. Happy knitting!
