Mazie's Mittens

from Stefanie Japel Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Mazie's Mittens
Mazie's Mittens

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting
  • Purling

Pattern Description:

Knit on straight needles, these mittens are a great way for a beginning knitter to make handmade mittens without trying to use double-pointed needles. (Or for an advanced knitter to make mittens when you?ve forgotten your knitting bag at home over the holidays and have to borrow stuff from your mom.)

I used two colors of DK weight yarn: one for the ribbing, one for the hands, and a little bit of white to embroider the snowflakes. You could do these in a solid, use up several leftovers to make stripes, or any number of combinations.

By changing yarn weight and needle size, you can make these mittens larger or smaller to fit children of various ages and sizes. (Use sock yarn and US1 / US3 needles for baby mittens, Use worsted weight yarn and US5 / US7 to make mittens for older children.)
