Curly Wurly Mittens
The Curly Wurly Mittens are worked top down. Stitches for the thumb are placed on hold while working. The mitten’s top is shaped with decreases on both sides and the remaining stitches are pulled together. Finally, the mittens are felted in the washing machine for the desired result.

WATCH OUT! Felting is not an exact science and the result depends on several factors. Depending on which washing machine and/or which washing program is used or even with which other garments your work is washed, the result can vary. Some test knitters have reported that different colours behave differently when felting. You just have to try it out for yourself and make your own experiences.
