Felted Door Mitten


DSCF2140

I purchased this knitted hand pattern at the seminar for hand knitters that I attended last Saturday. The pattern is called Felted Door Mittens by Two Old Bags, formerly Wool YouOrder.  The felted Santa is a design from another hand knitting pattern for felting a Christmas ornament that I also purchased there. The name of that pattern is Needle Felted Folk Santa Ornament Pattern #W325P by Mary Dolan/Wistyria Editions.

I figured out how to knit this on the machine and it was quite easy but time consuming when it came to the decreases. This mitten is huge but I failed to put a measuring tape next to it. It was at least 30 inches long. Felted it is almost 16 inches.

It took almost 7 ounces of wool to make. This also can be used for a stocking on the fireplace as it is large enough to fill with gifts, candy and other items. It looks a little plain for the fireplace so I would add maybe snow or I don’t know what. lol

For the door hanging, the greenery should be holly or pine needles. Of course, these greens are arborvitae but you get the idea.
