Candy Corn Mittens

While mittens might look complicated, they surely don’t have to be.  So, contrary to what you may have been led to believe, mittens do not have to be knitted on multiple needles.  In fact, it is quite a straight forward process to knit mittens on regular knitting needles and be just as successful.

These sweet little mittens have a ribbed cuff and are worked flat with a simple sewn seam to finish.  Perfect for anybody a little intimidated about working with double pointed needles.

Notes

Rated: Easy +

Gauge: 16 sts x 21 rows = 4″

This pattern is sized for kids approximately ages 5 to 8.  You can adjust for the length of the thumb, and the length of the palm as you go if you wish.  However, this pattern has the size adjustments for toddlers ( ages 2-4) and big big kids (ages 9-14) available as a printable pdf in The Pattern Shop.  Also, the cuff is worked in a 2×2 rib, which gives it that ability to stretch and be a comfy cuff.

Inc = Increase – Use whichever increase method you like best. I use M1R: Insert the right needle from the front into the side of the stitch below the next stitch on the left needle, lift it onto the left needle and knit it

Sl1, K1, psso = Slip one, Knit one, pass slipped stitch over – a very simple decrease, where you turn two stitches into one.  Insert your right-hand needle into the next stitch on your left-hand needle, as if to purl, and slip it off the left needle, onto the right needle. Knit the next stitch on the left needle. Pass the previously slipped stitch over the stitch you just knit right off the needle. (Sl1, K1, psso)
