Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • circular knitting
  • Magic loop method or double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

These chunky rainbow mittens are easy to knit on a medium or long circular needle using the magic loop or a set of double-pointed needles.

I have included links to Magic Loop video tutorials. You can knit these mittens using double-pointed needles if you prefer.

This is my Go To pattern for fingerless gloves: you can use it as a basis for more intricate designs with various wrist lengths, add cables or use a different stitch and different colors. Knit these in the round to avoid seams so they will fit snugly on your hands.

  • Women - Medium
