Last winter Simplicity had a free mitten pattern, which I downloaded, not quite knowing why except it was there.
Earlier this week I remembered the pattern & the extra green fleece from my winter hat.*
Pattern is easy enough that even I could navigate the thumb piece into place, despite the super thickness of the fleece. They’re now complete. Almost.
I can’t get the wrist elastic right. Tried & ripped out 1/4” & wider elastic and stretched the elastic waaay out whilst sewing. None have gathered. Nada. Non.
Am putting them aside for a few days… and enjoy today’s much warmer temps. He-hee!
* Hat update! Decided the pleats weren’t large enough ~ the thick fleece needed more definition. Then did another seam around the crown to take up a bit more fabric and really like the fit now!
