Blue Lagoon Mittens




How nice it is to design your own mittens. matching your new wintercoat or spring jacket!


Thanks to THIS pattern by Brenda Anderson, you can make as many as you like
I made this specific pair on order for a colleague of mine.
As you probably noticed....her favorite colour is ocean blue.



TIPS:

If you think the bottom of the mitten is too wide, just add extra rounds after you're finished.
I addes 3 SC rounds and added an elastic band in the second round.

I also add extra strength to the section between the thumb and the hand, just take the yarn you are using for the glove to sew that part together a bit more,

The bow is an extra finishing touch.
HERE you can find the pattern of the bow by Jess.

Enjoy your new mittens.
