Ivy Felted Mittens

A while back a customer came into my store looking for a pattern to recreate a mate to a felted mitten. I became quite smitten with said mitten and asked her to leave the solo mitten with me so I could design a pattern to make a new mitten. This is the result. I'm rather pleased with these mittens. They are very warm, go up high on the cuff, and have some simple details that add a lot. The cuffs are embroidered after with french knots and simple stitches. Both mittens also have a single silver button which adds a touch of class. They work up fast with a double strand of bulky wool on size 13 dpns. You can whip a pair up in an evening!
