How to avoid the thumb to felt together

In this DROPS video we show you how to avoid the thumb to felt together.
Turn the mitten inside-out and place a plastic bag inside the thumb to avoid it felting together. Fasten it with a safety pin - NOTE: Fasten the pin vertically down towards tip of thumb to make it easy to remove after felting. Turn the mitten out again so that it is felted with RS outwards.

This mitten is knitted in DROPS Alpaca. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.
