I made several pairs of these mittens for us and for Christmas gifts. These sell by crafters around here for about $20 per pair. With hand-me-down sweaters and one that I bought at the Goodwill, plus the fleece linings, six pair cost me about six dollars and I still have lots of materials left over but my Christmas list is complete for mittens.
The pattern I used was from Five Green Acres. The largest pattern was the perfect size for Dancer but a bit too short for the rest of us. I made the mitten about an inch and a half longer splitting the increase between the finger portion and the bottom wrist part. I also made the thumbs a wee bit longer and found they fit the best of I trimmed them as close to the seam as possible.
These are really simple and would make a great first sewing project. Super soft and warm!
