Here is something you can do with sweaters that you are not wearing anymore. I decided to make these mittens from older work sweaters with a logo for a more personalized mitten. If you like the logo mitten, make sure the stitching is large enough to fit where you want it to.
I found a great Youtube video by LifeHacker. The demonstrator not only does a great job explaining how-to, she gives you a PDF file pattern for S, M and L mitten sizes to download.
You cut four sets of mittens for each project. Two are from sweater material and the other two are from fleece; two for each hand. Then the fleece mitten fits inside the sweater mitten and the sweater sleeve cuff connects the sets at the bottom and is turned up.
I added suede to the palms of the set on the right for driving stick. You will need to stitch the suede on to the sweater piece before assembling the mitten.
