This is a knitting pattern for making handfelted wool mittens using handspun yarn.
I used handspun merino wool and felted the mittens after knitting. I also added a trim to the cuff of the mittens using Sami-style woven braid. You could also embroider a design into the edge.
I have a fairly small hand – so this pattern will need to be adjusted for larger sizes to fit your hand. Since the mittens will be felted, allow for about 10-15% shrinkage.read more
