In our last post on Broughton I showed you how to finish the flip-top openings. The thumbs in the same way, by removing the scrap yarn and returning the held stitches to the needles. Each thumb is worked from the chart like a miniature mitten tip. Once the thumbs are complete you'll be ready to add the linings, which this post will go over.

The linings are attached to the mittens from the beginning, rather than sewn in, and are worked by picking up stitches around the inside edge of the cuff. If you skipped the braided cast on simply pick up stitches along the cast on edge with the mitten towards you and the right side facing outwards.

If you worked the braided cast on, you'll pick up your stitches from the purl bumps of the first round above the cast on so that the braid remains on the outside.

The mitten lining is worked like a plain version of the mitten, and finished with ribbing. The afterthought thumbs are worked in the same way as the mitten thumbs.

If you skipped the flip-top openings and live somewhere really cold where you want the extra layer on your finger tips you could continue the linings to be full length by copying the mitten shaping.

Block the mittens with the linings pulled out. 

After blocking bring the lining to the inside and stitch the bound off edge of the flip-top opening to the base of the ribbing on the lining. Contrast colour used for illustration purposes!
