How to do right- and left-leaning increases in knitting.

Starting this Sunday and for the next 12 weeks, our video tutorials will have a completely different look and feel, compared to what you’ve been used to seeing on our YouTube channel for the past five years. We wanted to change things up a bit, so we decided to temporarily relocate to Lofoten in northern Norway, and record our Sunday video tutorials on different locations around these stunning islands!⁠

In this week’s tutorial which was recorded in Nusfjord, a lovely little fishing village in the southern shores of Flakstadøya, we show you how we do right- and left-leaning increases to knit traditional style Norwegian mittens. There is also a new mitten pattern available in our webshop!

We are also looking forward to showing you around Nusfjord!! Our next virtual postcard, which we will publish on Tuesday, August 11th will feature this lovely little village, as we continue to drive around and discover everything these magical islands in the “land of the midnight sun” have to offer, so stay tuned!!

On a final note, we have to express how lucky we are to live such an uncrowded country like Norway, especially during times like these. Our country has not been profoundly affected by the coronavirus, and we can safely travel around, as long as we follow our government’s guidelines. We would like to encourage everyone to be responsible and to please follow your government’s instructions, whatever they may be! Please wash your hands regularly, keep 6 ft distance to others and if your government requires it, please wear a mask when out in public.
