My doubledouble mittens wore out. I wasn’t surprised, as it was the fourth winter I was wearing them. I was somewhat lazy and had other things to do, so I tried to manage through this winter wearing my other mittens. First I tried basic felted mittens, but my hands were freezing. Then I put on stranded mittens and felted ones. Still no good. Finally I decided it was easier just to make a new pair of doubledoubles. And here they are:
This time I used smaller needles for the inner mittens. I didn’t want to sew the mittens together, nor pick up stitches, so I just crocheted them together with white yarn. For the embroidery, I got the inspiration from estonian magazine Käsitöö and also from Mulgi folk costumes. And right after saying to my husband: this other mitten went so quick compared to first, I noticed, that I had made two right hand mittens. The embroidery on the second mitten was on the palm side. So I ripped the embroidery out and remade it. I’m happy now!
