Narwhal Mittens PDF
Ysolda's Narwhal Mittens will keep your hands cozy in temperatures real whales would be perfectly at home in. Traditional Selbuvotter mitten patterns on the cuffs and palms combine with fun details like the fish on the thumbs and, of course, the narwhals.
I love the fabric that the squishy, sport weight Chickadee gives in stranded colourwork at this range of gauges but heavier DK or worsted weight yarns could be used if you prefer your mittens to be very dense or wish to make them larger than the largest size given.
This pattern is a downloadable PDF.
