Rilleruth Mittens are worked top down with double folded ribbing. 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.
