Does anyone know of a website where I can find an English pattern for Scandinavian/ Selbu mittens? Nothing too complicated, but still nice... please help!

Are you on Ravelry? They have several that are not too complicated and free!

Beware of Ravelry - it's a black hole.

You can also check to see if your local library has a copy of "Selbuvotter: Biography of a Knitting Tradition" by Terri Shea. It's dedicated to these mittens, is in English and has wonderful pictures.
