Mitten Pattern


Instant Digital Download

In the 1980s Spin-Off Magazine held a contest calling for patterns using hand spun yarn, and my mitten pattern, called "Family Mittens", won my place and was published in the Interweave Press book, "Homespun Handknit". Later it was reprinted in "A Handspindle Treasury". Both of these books are now out of print.

It is not necessary to use hand spun yarn. Any heavy worsted weight yarn will do- 100 yards for the kids pattern and 200 yards for the adults sizes. Hilltop Handspun single ply Lopi Type Yarn works great, too!

The pattern calls for US #6 and US# 10 Double Pointed needles and is knit in the round.

If you are a Ravelry member, look up "Family Mittens" for more examples and reviews.
