  5. Good example. I have brushed hats before for babies.
  6. Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate this holiday. The world is upside down, but still so much to be thankful for. On row 17. Sorta a side to side cardi design (of body) then sleeves separate. Another relaxing, no stress pattern.

  11. Just to add. I think even acrylic can be brushed to fuzz it up. For adult mittens I’ve made I’ve usually gone with a blend of washable merino wool myself. Pure wool unless it’s felted/fulled aggravates my skin. Have fun making them.
  12. Sounds like he fulled them, salt water, friction then ice. Here's an interesting article I found. New England's Fisherman Mittens (gatheringyarn.com) "The reason I'm asking is that I crocheted some winter mittens and I am looking for anything that can help with wind penetration. I used a very small hook for the size of yarn, and the holes are very small and mostly unnoticeable." Are they wool? You could turn them inside out and brush them.
