Candy Cane Mitten Pattern

My second attempt to make mittens for the winter!

I had mittens that I was wearing it for almost a decades and still wanted to continue to use them. So to carry on, I made knitted mittens and use my old mitten as inside lining to make good use of it.

This post includes free pattern to make Candy Cane Mittens without the lining.

I had these grey mittens from high school that I got it as a gift. After using it for 17 years now, it was time to make changes. I re-used this mitten as lining for my new knitted mitten so I modified to make it smaller to fit, remove any tags.
