GUNDER Selbu Mittens

kr63.20 kr47.20

This mitten is a is inspired by an original  Selbu mitten  knitted with 1.5 mm needles (U.S Size 000). Our design has been adapted so it can be knitted in our Norwegian Yarn from Rowan, with larger needles.

Like in the old days, there is only one size available, and different sizes are based on the needle you use.

The good thing about Norwegian Yarn is that you can knit with different needles and the yarn will work regardless, so for a smaller mitten you can use a ndl 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm and they will still look good.
