Join us to knit this classic Selbu Mitten with classes on January 12 from 1:00 to 4:00 and on January 19 from 1:00 to 3:00. This “Skeindeer” design calls for one skein each of two highly contrasting colors in Rauma Strikkegarn DK weight yarn that are available at this time at My Sister Knits. The pattern calls for the Old Norwegian cast on that is also known as the German Twist cast on. The long tail cast on method may be used though the Old Norwegian gives a sturdier edge to the cuff.
1 skein each of two highly contrasting colors of Rauma Strikkegarn
DPNs in appropriate size to get gauge
- Check your gauge so that you are using the best needle size for your tension
- Determine which color you prefer for the dominant color
- Cast on and knit K1, P1 ribbing x 2 rounds; knit round three to end
The sample at the shop in red and white has two minor changes to the cuff in that four rounds of the cuff were eliminated as the cuff seems too long in the instructor’s estimation.
