This is the 3rd pair of Selbuvotter mittens that I've made. I don't think I've ever knit 3 patterns from a single book in a row before. But these mittens are so gorgeous and I have several more people on my Christmas list who are getting mittens (or maybe gloves), so I can indulge in this obsession.
So far, I've used Knit Picks Palette yarns. They knit up a bit smaller than the given gauges, so my mittens have all been tighter and smaller than the book, but they're okay for the recipients. While I love the black and white traditional colors, I'm low on black yarn right now- and besides which, I like mixing up the colors.
These are Annemor #2. I shortened the mitten by about 1 1/2" (my 6 year old granddaughter wouldn't want all that empty flapping at the end of her hand), and I shortened the thumb by 1 repeat.
And finally, on the 5th mitten, I got the hang of picking up the thumb stitches so that the patterns match. I needed to get that technique figured out before I tackle gloves.
