So, a while ago I transformed my granny's old selbusock-pattern to a mitten pattern.



I'm in love with how the mittens look.





And here is the same but with opposite coloring.



I actually think I like white on black the most. It looks cleaner.



I've knitted a lot of these in different colors. It looks great in blue and white, or purple and gray. Unfortunately I never hang on long enough to the mittens to take a photos - they're more popular than warm cookies  Cheesy

The pattern is free and available on ravelry.

Wow, these are so beautiful! I am dying for mitten weather to be here and for this heat wave to be over.  Wink I love the Scandinavian pattern on these mittens!

I am definitely going to check out that pattern. Did these take you forever to make?

Great work!  Cheesy

They are gorgeous! I do like the white on the black better but I love the fact that they are inverse of each other - very cute!

Thanks everybody! Cheesy Winter is definitely better with great mittens!

When you get into the rhythm of it they're quite a quick knit, quicker than socks with color-work anyway. I can make a pair in a weekend Grin

Those look super comfy and warm! Stranded mitts really are so toasty!  I too enjoy the white on black as opposed to black on white.  Great work!
