I've had a lot of fun knitting mittens this year and the "Helianthus Mittenus" pattern tops my list of favorites. This was my first time using Rauma Finullgarn and I was not disappointed. Norwegian yarns are like no other! I'm hooked on Rauma! For more information and lots of friendly help, Debbie at Nordic Fiber Arts in New Hampshire is the best! This pattern fits my hands perfectly and thanks to the thumb gusset, the mittens look great, no stretching of the stitches around the thumbs.
