Product details

This bright, cheery mitten is from Arjeplog, Sweden. It is knit from ribbed cuffs to the mitten tip using five different colors of fingering weight yarn and mimics the popular, Swedish 'rosengang' woven fabric. This pattern has been in the Arjeplog area since the 1860s, and was soon translated to knitting. The knitter will need to use up to three colors of yarn per row. Directions are charted.
