SUNDAY 2.00 - 4.30pm
Traditional Norwegian 'Selbu' mittens are popular with knitters around the world. Traditionally knitted in black and white wool featuring traditional Norwegian stranded colour work (‘fair isle’) patterns but these mittens can be worked in a variety of colours for a modern look.
In this fast-paced class we’ll knit a mini mitten to learn how to shape the mitten, insert an after-thought thumb and how to knit two-handed stranded colour work.
You will be given a Selbu inspired mitten pattern to take home.
