Woolly Workshops – Selbu Mittens
October 16, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm| £36
Traditional Norwegian ‘Selbu’ mittens are popular with knitters around the world. Traditionally knitted in black and white wool featuring traditional Norwegian ‘fair isle’ patterns but these mittens can be worked in a variety of colours for a modern look.
This workshop will teach you how to knit fair isle, how to knit in the round with a circular needle using the magic loop technique and how to shape your mittens.
Techniques taught in this class can also be used to knit traditional Latvian and Estonian mittens.
You will get a Selbu-inspired mitten pattern to take home.
