How to Knit Hedgehog Mittens – DIY -> make a hedgehog and an otter one for each hand and you've got John and Sherlock! now to find an otter mitten pattern… <-the hedgehog would have to be for the right hand, because John is Sherlock's right hand man :)
Ruth Instructions how to knit mitred squares are in Vivian Hoxbro's lovely book "Knit to be Square". I used Noro Kureyon yarn in 10 colours, 2 balls of each, and experimented! The colour combinations in this yarn are wonderful!
Worked on just ten stitches, these garter stitch zigzag strips are joined as you go so there is no sewing up. This technique can be used to make blankets or scarves and works with any yarn and needles.
