MITTEN-ALONG- Last part!!!

Here you go! The final thing you can do for those mittens, IF you want to. Works well so little ones don't keep losing their mittens!

Part 5
COAT STRING for young children's mittens
Join yarn to one cuff at seam stitches and then sc around entire cuff.

* make a ch about 2-2 1/2 feet long and join with sl st to other mitten at seam.

* Sc around that mitten too, and you now have a string to thread mittens through coat. Cut a 4" tail, thread onto a needles and weave tail through the inside of the mitten.

For extra warmth, use double yarn and brush the inside of the mitten with a hair brush to make it 'fuzzy' and soft.

Hope all of who wanted to were able to make some mitts! Tomorrow I will post the entire pattern as it was on here for the mitten along. That way you can print it out in full if you wish. :)

This is just what I've been looking for. So much yarn left and what to do? Now I have mittens to go with the hats I make for the people who need them the most. Thank You and GOD'S blessings always.
