A knit in-the-round mitten pattern I've worked on for years - originally from my grandma and has been updated and altered as I've perfected it. It is a pattern styled for a woman's hand - but you can definitely add or remove rows to adjust length, as well as take some stitches out of the palm of the mitten for a smaller hand.
The cables help keep a nice fit - but I also line them with flannelette after I'm done for an extra warm mitten! This is a step-by step pattern with detailed instructions so you won't get lost!
I use size 6(4mm) needles when doing these mittens, but you can adjust to a size 5 or 7 depending on your tension. If you are not lining them, I suggest using size 5 needles.
If I am doing a double layer cuff so I can line these later, I often do 30 rounds, but if I'm leaving them with a single layer cuff I will do 15, as I like a longer cuff.
To do the opposite mitten, simply read the pattern from right to left.
Please feel free to sell items made from this pattern - I would appreciate if you linked back to this pattern and said where you got it from! Thank you!
