Mittens of Many Colors


Betty makes a pair of mittens that are very colorful.

I have made many pairs of colorful mittens.   There always will be some color yarns left over.  I am a firm believer in not wasting anything that can be used.  Inspired by Dolly Parton's "Coat of Many Colors", I made a pair of mittens of many colors.

The cuffs are the two type of commercial yarns, black and white.  The reason why the cuffs need to be made from commercial yarns is because Angora yarns do not have memory.  If the cuffs were made from Angora yarns, they stretch out thus lost the ability to hug the wrists.  I also put a few rows of the commercial yarns at the top to help the mittens to stay in shape after many uses.

Here is my left hand modeling the "Mittens of Many Colors".

Here is the other side of the "Mittens of Many Colors".
