The Heartfelt Mitten
Keeps both your heart and hands warm!
Felted ladies-mittens with heart embroidered in chain stitches. If you know how to knit and purl, you will have no problem making these mittens.
The final embroidering of the heart is a simple chain stitch. If you need help, check out the video tutorials at the bottom of this page. You can find tutorials on how to knit the thumb, decrease, sow chain stiches and how to shape the mittens on Sigrun’s knitting school.
Size: S (M) L
The pattern requires 2 skeins FRITIDSGARN from Sandnes Garn (50 gram = 76 yards) in your favourite color. I have used powder pink 3511 on the picture.
Guage: 14 stitches knit on needle 6 = 10 cm.
Needels: Double pointed needles US 10 (6.0 mm) or 7 mm.
You can use the same number of stiches in all sizes. The size depends on the needles you decide to use. As a rule, if you knit loosely, use 6 mm needles; if you knit firmly, use 7 mm needles. You can also adjust the size according to how much you felt the mittens in the final step.
