Rainbow mitts Rainbow mitts

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl
  • Make 1 stitch
  • Knit a corrugated ribbing with two colors

Pattern Description:

I had so many leftovers of multicolor 4-ply sock yarn in my stack and liked to make something really nice of them.
As I really like playing around with colors, this "stash-buster" idea came into my mind.

They are easy and quick to knit and also make a great last minute gift.
Apart from the two colored ribbings there is only one color in one round.


Knitting gauge: 1 x 1 inch: 9 stitches and 10 rows

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This mittens fit size S/M and even fit bigger hands.(11.5 cm width (front and back), 21 cm hand circumreference)


  • 35 g of self-striping or multicolored left-over 4-ply sock yarn. Best are rainbow colors
  • about 35 g of plain colored (e.g. dark red) left-over 4-ply sock yarn.

You Will Also Need:

  • 5 double pointed needles size 2.75 mm (for normal sized hands) or 3.00 mm (bigger hands)
  • 40 cm circular needle the same size (or some leftover yarn) for parking" the thumb stitches

Suggested yarn:

230 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Brand is not important :-)
