Easy Straight Needle Mittens Knitting Pattern

Easy Straight Needle Mittens Knitting Pattern- a beginner-friendly pattern for classic mittens.

Easy Straight Needle Mittens Knitting Pattern

Mittens can seem like an intimidating pattern if you’re new to knitting. They’re using knit on double point needles, which can be tricky to handle even for experienced knitters. These basic mittens are knit on straight needles using rib and stockinette stitches. The increases for the thumb are created by knitting in the front and the back of a stitch to increase (Kfb).

THE AD-FREE, PRINTABLE VERSION OF THIS PATTERN CAN BE PURCHASED FOR A SMALL FEE AT MY PATTERN STORE, SHOP GINA MICHELE. PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW TO PURCHASE THE PDF, OR SCROLL DOWN FOR THE FREE VERSION.
