Learn how to make handmade mittens from felted wool sweaters with this super easy tutorial.
Here’s a super simple project for those of you itching (pardon the pun) to try something using felted wool sweaters. It’s from my book, Practically Green but I get to let you in on the details here on my blog. Isn’t that nice?
You’ll need a sweater with ribbing at the hem (you know, the stretchy part) which will become the cuffs of the mitten. And if you want to put an applique design on top, you will need some felted sweater material in a contrasting color. Use the star pattern below or make up your own!
Here’s a pair that I made. They are super warm and cozy! Someone asked me at a book signing if they were for sale, but I just can’t part with them. Please let me know if you make a pair – I’ll post the photo on my social media accounts!
