Cozy up this winter with mittens you stitched yourself! These mitten patterns are fun, quick and make great holiday gifts, too.
1. Heart Hands
These fingerless mitts are perfect for cool fall days, and you can decorate them any way you like. Bonus: they’re the perfect project for first-time knitters.
2. Insulate! Mittens
These stranded colorwork mittens have a secret weapon for warmth: floats. Floats are the extra strands on the wrong side of your knitting, and they provide an extra layer of coziness. Stitch up this pattern, tack those floats down and keep your fingers toasty all winter long.
3. Simple Mitts
Another beginner-friendly project, these mitts couldn’t be easier to knit. Just garter stitch to the fingers, bind off and voila!
4. Zigzag Mittens
Keep the winter chill out with these cute zigzag mittens. The sport weight yarn knits up quickly with double-pointed needles for a fun weekend project.
5. Felted One-Finger Mittens
Here’s the thing about mittens: no matter how cute they are, it can be tricky to maneuver your fingers inside. This pattern solves that pesky problem with an extra pointer finger knitted in! Anyone who’s not a fan of traditional mittens will love these.
6. Maize Mittens
The pattern for these gorgeous mittens includes sizing for everyone from toddler to adult, so you can stitch some up for the whole family. Plus, you can choose between traditional mittens or fingerless mitts to wear during milder temperatures. Win!
7. Freja Mittens
Look at that colorwork! This pattern is inspired by Freja, the Nordic goddess of love and fertility. As such, there are beautiful heart motifs throughout, including smaller hearts on the flip side too.
