I usually knit my own gloves and make them fingerless, but was in my local Wyvale garden centre a week or so ago and they had the fingerless gloves with the fold over mitten tops (button fastening to back of glove) for 3.99 and it was a buy one get one free offer - so I did! Not even I can knit them for that price :)

Cheers

I always ADD a crochet string to my grandchildrens mittens. If you or someone you know can crochet it will only take 15 min to make the string and add them to your mittens

Hi. I bought two pairs of these in Wilkinson's for my two daughters (in their twenties), both love em so much I've had to knit matching hats! Can't remember how much they were but they were cheap as chips and much less than I could knit them for.

You could buy a matching ball of yarn and plait six strands together (3 x2) to create the string to join them.

Have a fab time in NY - sooooo jealous :D

Ooh, good idea, I know someone at work that does crochet and I was thinking my daughter could use something like a string on her mittens so she doesn't throw them over the side of her pram. I would probably wait til next winter at the earliest though as I don't want her having a mischief with the string bit at her age!

I don't crochet too long a chain for the mittens just enough to be able to manipulate the mitten onto the hands so no need to worry about what they can do with the chain
