Add a layer of cozy fleece inside your mittens to keep your fingers toasty this winter. This design is an update on the traditional mittens of Newfoundland and Labrador where knitters salvaged the bits of yarn left over when fabric is cut off of the loom. Worked into the mittens, these ends — or thrums — provide an extra layer of insulation and warmth.

Materials & Supplies

• approximately 200 yards of worsted weight wool (such as Cascade 220)

• size US 4 double-point needles (or you may use a single circular for magic loop)

• tapestry needle

Prerequisites:

  • Knitting in the round, cast on/bind off,

Homework (complete before the workshop)
