There are a good many patterns out there for Oven Mittens, but none that had the sort of pizzaz Noni was looking for in an oven mitt . . . so, they created some striped, embellished Oven Mittens to knit and felt. The adornments can certianly be left off if you have a less embellished aesthetic. These Oven Mitts are designed to fit your hand, whether you are a person with small hands or large hands. Begin with either the small, medium or large size and then take them out of the felting process frequently and try them on . . . when they fit they are done.
This pattern contains instructions for one-handed Oven Mittens in three sizes. One-handed means you can put these Oven Mittens on left or right hands so you never have to worry about grabbing the correct one. Noni includes instructions for Hot Handle Grabbers and the traditional felted Trivet to put those hot things on when you bring them to the table. The flower embellishments are worked separatley and attached after felting. All of the items in this pattern are made with Cascade 220, and if you desire to work in a solid color, each particular item will take one skein or less -- that is, one mitten will take one skein or less. Skill level is Intrepid Beginner to Intermediate.
