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!

so wisted.

not that i want mitten weather but winter may be better with stunning mitts like those.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

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!
