In my town there is a Christmas jazz concert in "Kulturhuset Banken" every year. Their definition of jazz is wide, and it’s usually a varied, beautiful and joyful concert. The last song is always a cool and cheerful version of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is you”. The scene where the concert is played is an old scene that was redecorated for the Winter Olympics in 1994. The mittens are inspired by these decorations. The original colors are beautiful golden shades, but with too little contrast to show the mitten pattern, so I chose blue for a wintery pair of mittens, perfect for a Christmas gift. The mittens feature a picot hem, Latvian braids and a decorative stranded pattern, with embroidered flower.
The pattern has been test knitted, and the pattern is now available, in Norwegian and in English. You can make a pair for Christmas if you wish! I would love to see people try out different colour schemes on these mittens. (I have a half finished pair in other colours myself, that I might be finishing soon.)
The price is $ 5.50. Just choose which file to download (English or Norwegian) after you come back to Ravelry from Paypal. Or download both if ou prefer. And you don't have to be a Ravelry member to do that.
My friend and I had fun shooting these photos at Maihaugen. More photos here.
I live in a small Norwegian town. When I'm not busy with the rest of my life, I love crafting. I mostly knit, but I also crochet and sew. I like to make my own designs. If you have questions about my patterns, feel free to contact me: torirot(at)gmail(dot)com
