Team USA Mittens Reviewed by Ellie Binder on 2014-05-26 ****
I just made these in Homespun. They are a bit lumpy, but I think they will be comfy next winter. I have never made mittens before, I didn't think the directions were super clear, but they were not hard to make. The ribbing is done in a long strip and turned sideways and the rest of the item is worked on the edge. I changed to a larger hook after the ribbing, but that wasn't listed. The first one seemed wide after the thumb, before it started to narrow in around the fingers, so the second one I sc2tg sooner, but that one seems wide down at the base. I also made a cowl from the same ball of yarn, and I just had a tiny useless bit left over.
