This listing is for the knitting pattern "Queen Sonja". A delicate fingerless mitt worked in fingering weight yarn featuring a Norwegian stranded colorwork pattern and a gusseted thumb, Queen Sonja was designed for the December 2012 PhatFiber box celebrating Nordic Inspirations. Queen Sonja, the reigning queen of Norway is celebrated in this traditional design featuring a heart shaped snowflake topped by a Norweigian crown.
The pattern is written with charted colorwork and designed to be worked on double pointed needles. Knitters experienced with the magic loop method will have no problem using it to knit these mitts. I rate this project advanced intermediate due to the stranded colorwork motif combined with knitting in the round on small needles.

The original yarn used is JoJoLand Melody in a solid chocolate background and a colorchanging blue/green/yellow contrast. Melody is a fine fingering weight that runs 220 yds / 50 gms with a very soft hand. If you are interested in the original yarns, see my other listing for the Queen Sonja Kit. The pattern is sized for a small/medium adult woman, for larger hands I recommend going up 1 needle size.
