The warm felted mittens are very lovely when it’s snowing and cold outside. These are a quick and fun knit!

Pattern instructions:
The mittens are worked from written instructions.
The pattern includes a photo tutorial for Thumb gusset and written instruction for felting.

Yarn: your yarn is suitable for felting with hand, 100% Wool or wool with alpaca, that is not labeled “superwash”. For your first felt mittens, you might want to start with a simple knitted square. Do knit you a sample in stockinette stitch, check your gauge and felt the sample by hand.
I don´t suggest pure alpaca wool for the pattern.

Gauge: the pattern gauge is recommended, not important. You knit loosely as usual for a normal knitting project that you finish big mittens as usual.
