Three Pairs of Mittens
I have made these three pairs of mittens. The two pairs without a rib edge, one pink and a tan colour I added a small cuff to and the pair of mittens made with the original sweater ribbed edge was okay as it was. I lined them with a pink, and a tiger pattern fleece and decorated them with colourful circles using embroidery pure wool with a chain stitch in a spiral. I think that they all turned out pretty good. I still have good amount of the sweater left over to make small items maybe purses with. I chose these fleece linings a pink and a tiger pattern. The tiger pattern looks lovely and I will make mittens with this next adding a fawn colour lining.
