Knitting mittens can be a good way to use up yarn scraps. A few friendly stitches added to a pair of handmade or store-bought mittens (gloves, hat or scarf) might make a cozy little holiday break project or last minute gift. These embellishments could also be a happy way to mend holes or cover stains on well-loved winter attire.
Use contrasting, leftover yarn to add flowers, initials or snowflakes mimicking the stitches of the knit. Stitch on felt shapes, pompoms or felt balls. Add a colorful string to keep mittens from getting lost. Needle felt a few polka dots or hearts on to mend + camouflage holes.
Stitching a little extra love into these cozy little things might make it a bit easier to get outside + do all the good stuff winter has to offer. :)
