Knit Your Own Seahorse

Photo from Tori Seierstads blog.

In about 2 weeks there is a Knit Along (KAL) on Ravelry for these mittens designed by the norwegian knit designer Tori Seierstad. The pattern is free and a lot of knitters has tried it out, and are very pleased with both the result and the pattern. 

The KAL will start Desember 26th and there are no deadline. Just take your time. 


The pattern is in english, portuguese and french. To see more mittens click your way into Toris site on Ravelry. You can download the pattern from Toris blog or from Ravelry even if you´re not a member. 

I´m actually planing on joining my first KAL. I´m curious of how it will work knitting along with so many knitters all over the world. I find it really amazing - maybe I will see you there?

I´ve already knitted the seahorse into a sweater and a scarf and I get a lot of comments on them. It´s time for some mittens with the seahorse on. I already have the yarn in my stash: Kauni rainbow (what else...)

What could me more wonderful than to give christmas a rest with these mittens and swim along in the big pool of knitters online?

  2. Thanks for sharing!
    When I made this sea horse more than three years ago, I never dreamed it would become this popular.
    I'm happy if people find my blog, but did you know that you can download directly from Raverly even if you're not a member?

  7. Nu spørger jeg lige dumt: Er Kauni ikke en smule tyndt at strikke vanter i? Bliver de særlig varme? Men flotte er de:)

  8. Slet ikke dumt, Dorte. Nej det er som Finull som jeg er ved at strikke af. De trækker sig lidt sammen efter vask. Jeg synes de er gode og varme.
