Item details

Pattern for Norwegian mittens in the selbu tradition.

In these mittens I have combined 2 classic old designs:
The Norwegian ram’s horn rose, and the leaves pattern, mirrored.

Available for instant digital download after payment!

PDF -download includes full graphic diagrams of left and righ mitten,
and detailed written explanation on how to knit the mittens.

The rose is known in Norway as Værhornsrosa, or th Ram’s horn rose.
Its clear origins unknown, but knitting stars like this have been found on old textiles and pattern libraries from Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany dating back to the middle ages.

In the dark middle ages, when electricity was still unknown, the stars were loved as symbols of life and energy. Stars were often knitted into pillows and nightgowns, as protecting symbols against the darkness of the night.
For the same reason, stars were also knitted into mittens used in wintertime, as winter was considered the night of the year, and the night represented the dark and the unknown.

The 4 page-pattern includes graphic charts in clear detail
of right hand, left hand, thumb and lace pattern for cuffs.

- English US Edition
