The technique used to make this extremely warm mitten, believed to have originated in the Labrador region of Canada, was first described by Robin Hansen in ‘Fox & Geese & Fences’. Here we have taken our own ‘Elegant and Easy’ mitten pattern and adapted it to accommodate the bulk of the fleece, using a similar but different technique.
