’Harpun mittens’ are a pair of mittens to match the hat ’Harpun’. They are worked in a beautiful twisted stitch pattern reminding one of the tips of old harpoons and hunting gear. The pattern is a slip stitch pattern, where some stitches are slipped for several rounds before they are twisted.

The mittens are part of a set along with the Harpun hat. You can buy the set for 45 kr. in total (the price will automatically adjust at check-out).

The sizes are wide ranging, as the stitch pattern is elastic. Choose a size after how snug you want the mittens to fit. If the measurement (over the knuckles) is close to the biggest measurement, the mittens will be close fitting, while it will be more loose, if the measurement is close to the smallest measurement in the size. The length of the hand is easily adjustable as you just work the pattern for more rounds if you want to lengthen the hand.
