Easy Kid Mittens Knitting Pattern

Easy Kid Mittens Knitting Pattern- a beginner-friendly pattern that’s knit flat using ribbed and stockinette stitches.

Easy Kid Mittens Knitting Pattern

Mitten 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 kid’s 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).

These classic mittens are the perfect winter accessory!
