These are thrummed mittens.
I must say that they are fabulously warm.
They are knitted with little lengths of either fleece or thick fluffy yarn inserted every fourth stich of every fourth row, to make a warm lining as you go.
The above pair is a bit light on the lining as I was just trying out the idea with a pattern I found in the "Dyeing to Knit" book.
But it shows the concept clearly.
And together with a beany they make a lovely warm winter set.
The outside looks like this with little heart like dots resulting from the inserted thick yarn.
Quite decorative and cute.
