Customer Project - Felt Times Two!

Last week our customer Tammy came into the shop and shared some mittens she's been knitting for friends. (Lucky friends!)What gorgeous felted mittens! These are Double Cuff Mittens, felted on the outside with a knitted ribbed cuff on the inside.

These mitts are knit and then wet felted into super warm thick mittens. And then, after they have completely dried, Tammy does some seriously amazing needle felting on the outside. I LOVE THE BEES! I even threatened to take them home.

These mittens can be knit using a single skein of Cascade 220 for each pair. If you decide to put in the fitted cuff inside that is not felted Tammy warned us that you may need additional yarn. She's being creative and picked out some soft Malabrigo Rios today to go inside some of the ones in the photo.

If you are looking for inspiration for wet felted knitting projects you can check out this pattern and many more in the book Knit One Felt Two.
