Ögontröst - Child´s mittens in twined knitting

This is a design by Elsie Jönsson. You can find them in the book "Tvåändsstickat" by Dandanell and Danielsson. The pattern is included in the latest revision as well as in the earlier editions. The instructions are a bit sketchy so in several aspects I have found my own solutions.

These should fit a child 2-3 years old. I have made them as  miniatures of mittens for adult´s. The name "Ögontröst" is Swedish for Eyebright (Euphrasia), a plant often used in folk medicine and by herbalists to treat eye infections.

It was a nice project, but they took more time to knit than I had anticipated (they are small - but it is twined knitting).

The yarn used (a total of 60 grams) is from Wålstedts and I used dbpns 2,5 mm.

  1. Fantastiska vantar! Jag har inte stickat tvåändsstickning nu på ett tag. Får väl skärpa till mig ;-))

    Snart snart bär det iväg norrut! Ja om tre veckor, men det är snart det tycker jag.
