Selbuvotter, a book by author Terri Shea will be coming out in 2007. I was invited to test one of the patterns and knit a model for the book’s photos. Selbuvotter are a type of Norwegian mittens and gloves. The book will have patterns for more than 30 projects, varying in complexity, and all beautiful.

I have been a long-time knitter and also design my own knitting patterns. The selbuvotter were a very interesting and well-designed project. The photo shows that the patterning is continuous on the front and back. The thumb shaping is traditional to the style. If you like knitting or traditional Norwegian arts, you will have to take a look at the book.

Thanks to Terri for the fun opportunity and to my friend, Arnhild Hillesland, who supplied the Norwegian yarn for the project.
