Making your own handmade gloves and mittens needn't be as complicated as you may first think. There are lots of ways you can refashion existing items into a pair of gloves or mittens, meaning that a lot of the hard work is already done! Take a pair of socks or an old jumper and with a few adjustments - voila - a new pair of gloves!
