Shepherd Mittens

This design complements my «Shepherd Socks» further representing my passion for protecting and growing the wool of the rare, heritage breed of sheep - the Grå Trøndersau  (Gray Trøndelag sheep) through the year.  


Yarn:  The mittens were designed and knit with Rauma 2 ply Gammelserie garn. Rauma Gammelserie has a gauge of 28 sts = 10 cm, using 2.5 mm needles.


You will need 1 - 50 gram ball of Colour A- MC GL403 Lys grå melert (light heathered gray) and 1– 50 gram ball of Colour B -CC GL410 Sauesvart (black sheep).

This is a total of 100 grams and 320 meters.  

The mittens were designed to use only 100% pure Norwegian wool or pure, local wool of a similar gauge.


You can find the original Shepherd Mitten Yarn Kit here.


Needles:  2.5 mm, or the needle size you need to obtain gauge.
