These mittens are made in the round on double pointed needles, so no pesky seams to sew up! I use a regular 4 ply acrylic or wool blend yarn that is easy to care for and wears well. I like using variegated yarns, but you can make striped mittens by working 2 rows of each of 2 or more colors. You will need approximately 3 oz. of yarn to make a pair. This pattern is for kids sizes small -2 to 4 years; medium - 5 to 7 years (in parentheses); large - 8 to 10 years [in brackets] - 3 distinct sizes are presented in one pattern.
The gauge is 5 sts =1 inch, 8 rows = 1 inch using US size 4 (3.5 mm) double pointed needles and 4 ply yarn.
PDF and MS Word versions of the pattern are available for instant download, or can be delivered within 24 hours of payment via email to the address associated with your PayPal account.
Be sure to check out my Clickin'Stix line of knitting needles - they're some of the finest tools available for any price and oh so reasonable... I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed creating it :)
I just finished my first mitten using this pattern. The pattern is pretty easy to follow. I think it's the best mitten pattern I've tried. I used a stitch marker to mark the end of the thumb gusset. That made it a bit easier. I like the technique used to increase the stitches for the thumb gusset. Very neat.
