This kit includes the pattern and all 8 yarns necessary to knit a pair of mittens. These circularly knit mittens are designed in the classic style of the two-color Selbu Mittens of 19th century Norway: ribbing, a large star motif (known in Norway as an “eight blade rose”), pointed tips, “seam” stitches, and different small motifs on the palm, thumb gusset, and thumb. An added twist of many colors makes these mittens more fun to knit. Only the background colors (CC) change, as in the Scottish Fair Isle tradition, while the pattern color (MC) remains the same! The yarns included are Brown Sheep Nature Spun sport weight yarns (100% wool). The gauge is 9 sts and 9 rounds/inch. These mittens are knitted tightly to be warm. Finished Size: 8” long plus 3” cuff, 8.5” in circumference above the thumb.
Because I travel to teach throughout the year, I will sometimes take up to ten days to ship items. I appreciate your patience. I ship items by USPS 1st class or priority mail. I can combine shipping on purchases when necessary, so let me know if you plan to buy multiple items. Packages with value over $100 are mailed with signature confirmation. Contact me if you would like me to insure your package. I'm not responsible for any damage or loss that occurs during shipping. I will ship to your Etsy address unless you inform me differently. For shipping outside the U.S. please contact me for shipping costs. Also, note that many countries add extra charges. The Royal Mail in the UK for example, charges an extra £8 for orders over £15.
I accept credit card and PayPal payments here. Payment is expected at the time of your purchase. You do not have to be a member of PayPal to use it –you can use your credit card with PayPal! <http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account-746/>
