It’s not like you haven’t heard of them nor that they have gone out of style, but do you remember the mittens you had when you were a kid? I do. Of course, there were several mismatched pair because inevitably, one would get lost – even if Mom pinned them to our jackets. The only matching pair I had were impossible to lose, they were attached with a string and were ‘thread’ inside our jackets.
I knit my youngest son a pair of mittens last week and after weaving in the ends, I realized he would certainly lose one, if not both, of his mittens. That is when I remember the string. I knit up a 3 stitch i-cord and attached it to the mittens, then lightly felted it all. Two days later, once they were dried, we tried them out… they fit like…. mittens.
