Buska Mittens and Cowl Set - Pattern Only - Digital Pattern in English/Norwegian - Norwegian mittens - Norwegian design
** This listing is for the pattern only**
Norwegians like to relax by enjoying the outdoors. Our mittens and cowls are therefore essential to keep our hands and neck warm and toasty and that is why I decided to team up with a talented Norwegian designer to bring you these beautiful mittens and cowl set. The pattern that Steepfield Knits designed is called Buska Mittens and Cowl (Buskavotter og Buskahals in Norwegian). I hope you will enjoy creating your own Norwegian inspired mittens and cowl and that you will be transported to a happy, peaceful, joy-filled magical place as we are when we adventure outdoors.
Listing is for 1 x Buska mittens and Buska Cowl Set Digital Pattern in either English or Norwegian depending on your choice.
Your digital pattern will be available immediately to download after purchase.

These mittens are also available as a Kit together with yarn and the pattern that can be found here:
The recommended yarn is the following from Fjord Fibres:
Yarn Base : Trollfjord sock
Composition: 80% Wool / 20% Polyester
Yarn weight: Fingering
100g = 350m/380 yards 50g = 175m/190yards
Guage : 10cm= 24-26 sts
Recommended needle size: 2,5mm - 3,5mm (1.5 - 4 US)
Trollfjord sock base is durable enough for socks yet soft enough to use for shawls, hats, mittens and garments or even children´s clothing. It contains non-superwash wool but you can still machine wash on a wool program at 30 degrees with a detergent specifically for wool. However I always prefer to handwash my knitwear in general. Dry flat and do not tumble dry. I have used professional acid dyes and thoroughly washed and rinsed this yarn with a gentle wool wash detergent. I do however recommend washing items separately for the first couple of washes as very minimal colour bleeding may occur. This base is produced in the EU and contains Norwegian wool.
All items are produced in a Smoke-free / Pet-free environment .
