|Felt Applique Mitten Ornament - Updated Pattern!|
I love how the letters and numbers look stitched on the mittens! There are so many ways to use the letters and numbers to make special personalized gifts. Children love receiving gifts with the first letter of their name. For a family gift I'll make custom mini mitten ornaments with the last name initial. The number patterns can be used to celebrate a child's age or team number.
Did I mention that all of the felt patterns are easy to print and cut out? No resizing of patterns is necessary!
I've succeeded in using a good amount of stash yarn by knitting a bunch of mitten ornaments to give as Christmas gifts. The #7 ornament will be for my nephew who will be seven years old by next Christmas. The "R" ornament will be for my son. The red mittens below were knit with Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride in 'Red Hot Passion'. The light blue gray #24 mitten is the first for a countdown to Christmas mitten garland! I'm really excited about this project. I'm going to use as much stash yarn as possible and have the mittens be a variety of colors.

This month I also made a few mitten ornaments with felt hearts and another mini mitten ornament with a felt house...which kind of matches our home! The blue mitten below was knit with Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted in the color 'Brite Blue'. I used aqua colored felt for the heart and light aqua DMC embroidery floss to stitch the heart on the mitten.

My mitten ornament pattern still includes instructions for all of the original designs: heart, house, star and snowman. These mini mittens can be made with just about any worsted weight yarn. Each mitten requires about 25 yards of yarn. You will also need felt in desired colors, DMC embroidery floss or #5 pearl cotton, US size 3 & 5 knitting needles, two stitch holders, two stitch markers, a tapestry needle and a sharp embroidery needle. And, if you would like, an old button for the heart and star designs.
