This traditional Selbu style mitten was designed when my kitty, Baby, was in the hospital for hearth failure. I poured everything I had into her; all my love and good wishes for healing. She was with me another year, but sadly has passed away in 2011. Knit this mitten for the kitty - or cat lover - in your life.
Adult Medium. 4.25" across the palm and 12.75" from hem to fingertip
32st/32row = 4"/10cm over STRANDED stockinette
Fingering weight yarn of your choice. Sample uses Rauma Finullgarn (100% wool, 50 g, 175m) 1 skein each in 414 medium grey and 4106 light blue. I recommend wool or mostly wool.
Intermediate knitting. Knit, purl, K2Tog, SSK, Make 1, and especially stranded knitting, which is easier than it looks. Selbu mittens make a great "first stranded" project.
