With my husbands mittens I did a the two most basic stitches- knitting and purling. I started by knitting and purling, then I went to basic knitting in the row. I measured my husband's hands and knitted to the length I needed before I casted off and made the top flap and the thumb. For his mittens I added a dash of color with the green button to keep the flap down.
My mittens were a bit more complicated. I made some small cables and other designs in them, as well as making sure to use the basic knit and purl on them. I also added a lining from an old t-shirt for some extra warmth.
Lastly, a I finally I have picture up for my baby blanket design I made back in October.
