Is anyone still with me?
Today we are finishing up that first mitten! YEAH!
... tomorrow you will learn how to add a coat string for younger children, if you wish!
FINISHING: If you have not done so already, cut a 15" yarn tail.
Thread your yarn tail onto a yarn needle.
Fold your mitten in half lengthwise & sew around matching stitches on one side of the mitten with the other side. (See the photo)
As you sew the tip of the thumb or top of the mittens, run the needle and yarn under the few top stitches across to the other side, pull slightly. This will gather the top a tiny bit.
Continue sewing down the other side.
Now this is where you can take a bristle hair brush and gently brush the inside of the mitt to make it slightly fluffy.
Turn right side out. *See photo
Extra Cuff: Single crochet around the cuff for 2 or 3 rounds. Single crochet in every other 'ridge' around the 1st time to make the wrist tighter. (This will cut your number of stitches in half)
Make another mitten the same.
See you tomorrow!!
HUGS-- stay warm! and hug those teenagers wandering through your fridge!
