Another Prototype – Same Sweater – Mittens

So I had the arms left over from the sweater I felted the other day and decided to try some fingerless mittens with a thumb hole.

I figured out where I wanted my thumb to come through and picked the stitches in the seam so it could pop out. I also straightened out the ends.

The arms were a bit too wide so I turned them inside out sewed a straight line down from the seam and cut off the excess.

Again, because I’m really trying to get my stitching skills up there, I used blanket stitch around the thumb hole and the bottom of the mitts.

I like these because you can change the length of the mitten.

Overall I think these are super cute. I need to tweak the design a bit and continue to work on my hand stitching, but I like them. They would come in handy in so many situations.
