Selbu Mittens

Discover the Rich History of a Norwegian Knitting Tradition
Anne Bårdsgård


Selbu Mittens is a thoroughly researched and illustrated account of the rich history of Selbu patterning – instantly recognizable for its dramatic contrasts and intricate multi-colour motifs – covering the development of the designs themselves, and the essential role these knitted accessories have played in the cultural and economic development of the Selbu region of Norway.

Experienced knitters won't be able to resist over 500 colourwork charts, organized according to the source of their inspiration, from classic stars, snowflakes and flowers to elk, spiders and coffee beans.

Complete patterns are included for 35 mittens and gloves accompanied by short biographies of the original designers. Or choose from an overflowing selection of motifs for palms, thumbs, cuffs and even patterned edging techniques for joining around the hand, to create endlessly fascinating combinations.
