A speedy and warm mitten incorporating a number of interesting techniques: a ‘reducing’ waste yarn opening for the thumb, an un-fulled cuff (for maximum draft exclusion) and a tubular bind-off!
If you prefer to felt your mittens all at once (rather than adding the cuff after felting), an option for a felted gauntlet cuff has been included.
These mittens are named for the Selkirk mountains that surround Nelson, British Columbia, the venue for my Adventure Knitting camp 2017.
The mittens are customized for right and left hands at the felting stage.
