I personally am in love with all the cowl things these days, as I love not having to worry about what to do with the ends of a scarf.  Also, I am developing a wee bit of an obsession for infinity scarves, for the same reason ( not a huge fan of loose ends) plus I love the way the extra layers pile up around my face.

It may indeed be the season of all things pumpkin, but we better not overlook Candy Corn.  And since we all love candy corn and knitted mittens, you can’t go wrong with Candy Corn Mittens, right?

 Candy Corn Mittens - free knitting pattern for candy corn themed easy knit mittens for kids. Worked flat with a simple seam

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.

Candy Corn Mittens Knitting Pattern

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.
