2-Needle Mittens

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky


16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) using larger needles.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Work this new stitch through the back loop.
ssk (slip, slip knit) Slip the next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, from the tip of the left needle to the tip of the right needle; insert the left needle into the fronts of these 2 sts from the left and k them tog from this position to dec 1 st.


With smaller needles and leaving a long tail, cast on 25 (29, 35, 41) sts.
Row 1 (WS): P1, (k1, p1) across.
Row 2: K1, (p1, k1) across.
Rep these 2 rows 6 (6, 9, 9) times. Change to larger needles. Beg with a purl row, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 3 (5, 7, 9) rows.

Row 3: K to marker, slip marker, M1, k to last st before 2nd marker, M1, slip marker, k to end.
Rep Rows 2 and 3 until there are 9 (11, 13, 15) sts between markers.
Purl 1 row.
Palm (RS)
Next Row: K12 (14, 17, 20), removing markers, slip next 9 (11, 13, 15) sts to a stitch holder, k12 (14, 17, 20). Continue in St st until piece measures about 5 (6, 9, 10) in. (12.5 (15, 23, 25.5) cm) from beg. End with a WS row and place marker between 2 center sts.

2-Needle Mittens For Mall Of America Reviewed by Samantha Stancliffe on 2012-12-10 *****
This was my first experience knitting mittens and the pattern was very easy to follow. I used a multi-colored acrylic yarn instead of the kind listed in this pattern and it came out fine. Thanks for a great pattern!
