White Mittens - Man´s size

Man´s size mittens in twined knitting featuring decorations in crook stitch. Using crook stitch is very rewarding with white yarn since the patterning gets very visible.

These patterns are from Dalecarlia (Dalarna) and I thought combining them on a pair of mittens fitting . The variations with crook stitches are uncountable and I can imagine many  different developments of these stitches for new mittens.

My only concern is that they will probable get dirty as soon as I start wearing them. I am thinking that perhaps it would be better to dye them. I will leave that decision until autumn.

As usual the yarn comes from Wålstedts. These mittens were knitted with dbpns 2,5 mm and I used about 160 grams of yarn.
