These are traditional Swedish mittens, knitted with two ends of yarn. The fabric has great warmth, strength, and durability, as well as great elasticity. This classic Swedish motif was knitted in both men's and women's garments.
Patterns from Knitting Traditions are always a treat. This pattern is a primer on color twined knitting techniques, and includes instructions on casting on, knitting, purling, and twining in colors, and managing yarns.
The pattern has 3 sizes, women's small, medium, and large.
