Flat Knit Kid’s Mittens Knitting Pattern

Flat Knit Kids Mittens Free Knitting Pattern

The weather has been absolutely freezing lately and all I want to do is stay indoors and knit! I had some yarn left in complimenting colors, so I decided to whip up these kid’s mittens. These flat knit kid’s mittens are a fast and easy knit. They’re knit flat and the thumb stitches are put on a holder and worked later.

This Soft Essentials yarn is great to work with and it comes in a bunch of complimenting colors. Soft Essentials is the chunky version of Red Heart’s Soft yarn.  I’ve used it in several other projects and I’m always happy with the end result.

Be sure to check back- Women’s version of this knitting pattern is coming soon!
