Taught by:

Lori Ann Graham


Thursday June 6th

Friday June 7th

Experience level: Intermediate


Lori Ann returns to Squam, this time sharing a class that’s particularly close to her heart. With Lori Ann’s guidance, you will learn to make Selbu mittens, or Selbuvotter.

Together you will explore traditional techniques to Scandinavian mitten making, but with a twist — by using two circular needles and worsted weight wool, Lori Ann will show you her personal tips and tricks for making these gorgeous mittens. Not only will you be surprised by how quickly they knit up, but you will also learn

  • knitting in the round with two circular needles
  • Selbu thumb gusset and patterned thumb ~ the easy way!
  • the Selburose; a traditional knitted rose pattern from Selbu Norway
  • how to fall in love mitten making!

PLEASE NOTE: this is an Intermediate class. Students need to know basics of knit and purl stitches, increases and decreases, how to pick up stitches, and how to work in two colors.

Kit fee: 10 USD
