New pattern: Frigg’s mitts and socks + giveaway

Autumn is upon us with full might, rainstorms and even the first snow, so it’s about time for more cozy knitting.

I am very happy to present to you the third set of pattern in my Norse series. After Jormungandr and Oden now please meet Frigg, Oden’s wife and goddess of wisdom, patron of motherhood and mother of Balder, god of poetry. Her long golden hair is praised in many stories. With simple details and gently winding braids this set of patterns shall represent her beauty and grace.

I wanted to create something simple ut beautiful and I hope this meets your standards 🙂 I loved knitting up these two pairs. Especially in this horrible weather the sunny brightness of the Frigg’s Socks made me happy. I love how only the thumb shows off the pattern in the mitts and am definitely planning to make some warm winter mitts with the pattern soon!

The socks are made from Cascade Heritage Lemon (5644) and Gold Fusion (5723). For he mitts I used Cascade Sorata in Peridot (19).

About the patterns:

  9. I feel like set #2 is calling to me. So gorgeous!
    And the Cuddle Me Caterpillar would be the perfect gift for my niece’s 1st Christmas. I loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar as a child and want to pass a great classic on to the next generation.

  10. I love the set #2. For gift making i would make the Follow Me Mittens for my sister (and i will make me an extra set, just for me)

    Falls ich gewinne, würde ich mich über Set 2 freuen. Da ich Mitts so gerne stricke, möchte ich gerne noch die Jormungandr Mitts für meine Freundin stricken.

  12. Found you through the Knit n Chat Facebook page. Just signed up for your newsletter-so excited. I love set Nr 1 and would love to make the Chase the Dragon socks.

  13. I love nr2 but the nr1 would be perfect as a gift for my daughter aince the color is her favorite. A lovely beautiful giveaway..thank you.

  14. I love you sock/mitt collections!! I would selfishly knit those for myself, so I’d probably have to knit your Hilde Hippo and some of the other cute stuffies for my nieces and nephews! I have been wanting a green yarn lately, so the first set really catches my eye! (I signed up for your newsletter. Just wish I’d done it sooner!)

  15. The 2nd set would make me happy as a freshwater clam! Love the color! I have 2 patterns that caught my eye… Valentina the sheep because I just love sheep. And the chasing the dragon mitts. They are just lovely!

  21. set 2 for me is my choice. Thx for having another contest. Your work is beautiful.
    I have used cascade with diff sized needles and after discovering your works I now use smaller needle size and get better stitch definition. Thank you for your designs. your Jormungandr is my fav and then Oden is next in line…lol

  22. Set 1 would be my choice for this pattern set. I’ve always associated her with the colors nature greens and harvest yellows as you have knit here. I would make the Odin set a gift for my husband. He follows the teachings of Odin and would love to have the set. I would probably end up making all of these as gifts for our kindred really
