- Fold the fleece in half or overlap two pieces of fleece, place the pattern on top and cut out four mitten shapes.
We chose to leave an extra inch at the opening of the mitten to finish the cuff.
- Set the sewing machine for a swing stitch and sew a 1/4″ seam allowance around the mittens, pivoting between your thumb and index finger.
Set your sewing machine for an oscillating stitch. A swing stitch is a slight zigzag stitch set at 2.0-2.5 in length and 0.5 in width. This stitch appears as a straight stitch on the right side, while still providing a slight stretch to the seam.
- Using scissors, cut the fleece at the “V” between your thumb and index finger, being careful not to cut the seams.
- Using the rounded part of the Clover's Point 2 Point Turner, turn the mitts right side out.
- Fold the cuff inward 1/2″ and sew the cuff.
- Your mittens are finished!
