Nasty Mittens

Now, I’m sorry if I’m rubbishing someone’s prize pattern here but these did not float my boat at all.  By the time you have made the thumb they are just too wide at the wrist and yes, i did follow the pattern (at first anyway!)  Anyway, a bit of massaging to the pattern and I got something passable if not perfect for keeping small hands warm on chilly nights.
