I made a pair for a coworker who is moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have made many pairs of these mittens, but your idea of attaching the cuff to the lining is the best! Thanks again!

I will adjust the pattern to fit my hand now that I know better of how the pattern works. My suggestion is to do a trial run with a material that you don’t care about such as cotton so that you aren’t cutting into that wonderful wool fabric first!!!
Thank you for your pattern!!

I’m beginning to make mittens from old wool felted sweaters. I took a number of patterns off the internet and have made several pairs of mittens. Often there isn’t enough room to the tip of the fingers, or the thumb is too short or too long. I am hooked on the project itself, BUT… none of the patterns fit either myself or several friends that have tried them on. Usually they are not large enough except for one, which is WAY TOO LARGE. And I can’t figure out how to use your pattern (how to draw it out or to make my own pattern). Can you help me?

I have made them only for friends and family and have never had the need to use a specific pattern–I have cut them according to the wearer’s hand size. I am sure there are simple online mitten patterns out there that could be altered for felted sweaters, though.

Who knows, once you get on a roll with one pair, you may find that the rest just pop out easily–let me know how it goes!

I’m in the process of cleaning out my elderly aunt’s home, and have discovered many outdated woolen sweaters. My intention is to make a pair of these mittens for every family member, using her sweaters so they’ll each have a memento of her. That’s my intention. If I even get one pair done, I’ll be happy. ~cam
