Notes

I used two strands of Worsted, held double and got a perfect fit because the first mitten I made was way too small, using just one strand. Plus, using only one strand gives you a very thin mitten. Using two strands of worsted gave me a thick, warm mitten. When I was knitting the first one I thought, “uh oh - this looks really huge” but after I seamed it up, it was perfect.

Took lots of photos to show how to fold the mitten up, which can be confusing the first time you attempt it.

This is a brilliant mitten pattern, knitted flat. Very interesting. Loved it.

For how-to photos, blogged about here.
