While doing my January clean out I discovered this cashmere sweater I had saved to use for felting or mittens. I decided to try the recycled sweater mitten pattern I had. You can find several free patterns for recycled sweater mittens on the internet. I washed the sweater in hot water and put it in the dryer to shrink it up.
From the sweater I cut out the mitten pieces and the cuffs which will be used for the cuff portion of the mitten. The pattern suggests I used fleece for the lining but I chose to use a cotton flannel.
On the cuff I needled punched a wool flower and added a button that was attached to the sweater.
One less project off my to do list and just in time, the past few days Minnesota has been unbearably cold.
