Hi all! I’m making some felted mittens for my DD and I’m noticing that the long tail cast on is getting really tight as the mittens felt. The rest of the mitten is great but the bottom of the cuff is really tight and hard to get over her hand. The cuff itself is fine so I don’t want to make that any bigger. I’m thinking there must be a different way to cast on that would be stretchier once it’s felted?
OR,…I saw some mittens on Ravelry that had the cuffs added AFTER the mitten was felted. How would I do that??? I’m running out of yarn for her mittens but I have a good friend who is helping me a lot with a jewelry project I’m working on and she mentioned she would like some felted mittens so I’d like to work out the kinks before I start the grown up mittens!
Any suggestions? I know that there is a KH member who is the “Queen of Cast-ons” so maybe she’s out there somewhere with a suggestion!!!???
