A family recipe for mittens - heavy worsted works best!


  • four size 4 (3.5mm) double-pointed needles
  • four size 5 (3.75mm) double-pointed needles

From the book: “When it’s late at night and the cold winds blow, you’ll be glad you made these toasty mittens. Knit in the round with thick worsted wool, this project is a good one to try after mastering the sculpted hat. (In fact, the leftover yarn from the hat will make a whole pair of mittens.) This pattern fits an average woman’s hand if you tend to knit tightly. For loose knitters or smaller hands, use size 3 and 4 double-pointed needles instead. To create a larger mitten, move up a size or two with your needles.”

The sample in the book was knit using one skein of Peace Fleece Worsted.
