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!
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. :)
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!!
