Heirloom Mitts

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Three pairs of fingerless mitts and a headband! I've given you all the information you need for all four patterns. I used worsted weight (4) yarn for all the projects and added some pretty iron on appliques. The appliques were so easy and fast to do I couldn't believe it! I give you the instructions for that as well. They don't distort the shape or function at all. You can certainly omit the appliques and use store bought felt pieces or embroider right on the mitts and headband. Knit some pretty, heirloom mitts reminiscent of a bygone era in modern colors. Then iron on an applique to make them extra special. A frilly, crocheted edge adds a touch of femininity. Little buttons allow the wearer to adjust the size that’s just right for them. No buttonholes, just push them through the seed stitch fabric. Easy, peasy! Frilly and truly fingerless...no thumb or slit! I like to wear this style with gloves when I’m driving as my coat sleeves always ride up my arm in the car. Feminine ruffles in a puff stitch and interest as does the iron on applique.
