Unthrummed Mitten

from Maine Cottage Creations
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Unthrummed Mitten
Unthrummed Mitten Inside of Mitten
Unthrummed Mitten
Unthrummed Mitten Mitten Kit

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • knit on double pointed needles
  • knit a basic mitten

Pattern Description:

These mittens are luxuriously lined with wool or silk roving to provide a yummy warm mitten without all the bulk or fuss of thrumming. They have been designed for knitting in the round with a thumb that is knit as you go.

I designed these mittens 8 years ago after attempting a thrummed mitten to keep my freezing hands warm in the Maine winter. I didn't have the patience to keep stopping for the thrums and this just seemed like a better way to line a mitten for me.

After spending a good long while redesigning this pattern, it now includes 4 sizes. From Children's Medium which is great for the 5 plus crowd to a Women's Large which will accommodate even smaller Men's hands. The thumb has been redesigned also to include the knit as you go, in the round thumb that I came up with for my Christmas Eve Mittens. If you haven't made mittens before, that pattern is a great place to start before attempting a lined mitten.

You can use any worsted weight yarn as it will be held double throughout the pattern. If you prefer, you can use a bulky yarn held singly as well. The smaller sizes will utilize one skein, but the women's large will need two skeins of worsted weight. Also, if you'd prefer a longer cuff and are knitting the women's medium, you will need two skeins as well.

I do have mitten kits available at MaineCottageCreations on Etsy
