VANTEVERK MITTENS is knitted from the ribbing and up on needles 4,5 mm. I’ve knitted these in Wild Wool which consists of a blend of wool and nettles. Nettles are a natural material that is known for its durability and strength when it comes to wear and tear. VANTEVERK is designed to be knitted with Magic Loop – in the pattern I therefore refer to two needles; the top of the mitten and the bottom of the mitten.

*if you want to knit in an alternative yarn, I would suggest that you choose a yarn with nettles, nylon or polyamide – it gives the mittens more strength and durability when in use.
