Wurst mittens
Instead of making regular mittens, I made these with flaps

Mittens with flip top
This is what they look like when you remove the flap.

Thumb flap
There’s even a thumb flap.

Made in 2011
For more comfortable wear, I added a thumb wedge. I started this project in 2011 and thought it was worth a mention.

These mittens were a gift to my husband. He wears them all the time and appreciates the flaps a lot since he’s not normally fond of mittens but prefer gloves. This way he can have both.
