Once Upon A Time MKAL - Clue 2

This week, for the OUAT MKAL,  you are receiving the remainder of the left mitt, plus the entire right mitt! I figure that you already know what the mitts look like, so there is no need to draw out the rest of the instructions. This will make the remaining 4 clues the cowl! I'm really enjoying how they are working the Frozen plot into the show so far!

You will notice that the only difference in the instructions between the left and right mitt is the cuff. This means that if you prefer to wear the mitts with the cuff flap facing down rather than up, you are completely welcome to do so. I think they look nice both ways, so it’s just a mater of personal preference!

A quick note for those of you using buttons rather than the bobble: You will need a total of 5 for the mitts and cowl together, and 3/4” - 1 inch should work just fine!

Also, on the finishing, you will want to block the mitts very gently, if at all. The star stitch is a squishy, puffy stitch, so when you are blocking it you don’t want to flatten it too much or you will loose the lovely three dimensionality and texture. I recommend just using a little steam to block the edges flat and open up the stitches. If you choose to wet block it than just make sure you don’t flatten it to much!

Well that's about it for this week, happy knitting and watching!
