Scrap Busting Mittens Free Knitting Pattern
The Scrap Busting Free Knitting Patterns continue! I’ve already done a cowl, a pillow and next up is mittens. I knit these using some super bulky yarn I had leftover from various projects. Since you’re only doing 2 rows per color this is perfect for smaller pieces of yarn.
These mittens are knit in garter stitch. They’re easy to make and they only take an evening to complete.
I’m pleased to announce that after all these Scrap Busting Knitting Patterns, my leftover yarn bin has dwindled down considerably. Which, of course, frees up room to….uhh…buy more yarn. I knew you guys would understand 😉 #YarnAddicts

These mittens are super cute. I tried making some, but I only end up with one "side". Do I need to make two? Am I supposed to be using circular needles? I am confused…
Hi- Yes, you make 2. I just updated the pattern to include that. The mitten is folded sideways and the seam is sewn closed.
