These are the mittens I have been making!!
My mittens are made from recycled sweaters. They are lined with fleece. The first pair that I bought were from a craft co-op in Sackville NB. I loved the idea of using old sweaters to make mittens. I figured out how to make them and since that time I have probably made about 20 pairs as gifts. I have refined the pattern and this fall I found a great video with a pattern. The website is http://studio5.ksl.com/?sid=4456414&nid=61
This video shows you how to make them and also provides a pattern. I changed the pattern pieces a little but the online instructions are easier then my original instructions. These mittens are easy to make and very cosy. One of the pairs that I have made are in British Columbia and one pair travelled to India.
