July Mittens

7.00

The July Mitten is worked in two parts; first, the outer mitten is worked, and then the mitten is embroidered in order to easily weave in all ends. Next, the lining is worked to complete the mitten. When working the lining, you may find it easiest to work the thumb prior to finishing all top of hand shaping in order to properly weave in all ends. 

The embroidery colors used in the mitten are featured in prior Year of Mittens patterns. You will most likely have plenty of leftover colors from previously knit mittens to work the embroidery.
