Wicker knitting set: knitted mitten patterns

Knitted mitten patterns

In order to finish a wicker knitting set I have decided to create a knitted mitten patterns. So now you will have knitted headband, knitted cowl and knitted mittens – all in the same cable and color style. Having this set ready – you will be fully equipped with knitted cloth to meet chilly weather. Here below you can find detailed knitting tutorial on how to knit mitten, but if you find something that is not completely clear – feel free to post a comment and I’ll try to get back to you asap. I wish you like end-result of my time and efforts and should be inspired to make your own set.

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> 5 Double Pointed Knitting Needles 2.5 mm (US 2);

<> Bonito Lanoso 49% wool, 51% acrylic. Orange color: 100 grams -300 m per skein (Used in total less then 1 skein)

Mitten gloves size:

Wrist size 16-17 сm

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches

Common abbreviations of knitting stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

k2tog – knit two together

Cable 3 Back (C3B): Slip 3 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in back of work, 3k from the left hand needle, 3k from the extra needle.

Cable 3 Front (C3F): Slip 3 knit stitches to the extra needle and hold in front of work, 3k from the left hand needle, 3k from the extra needle.

Note for knitters:

The left mitten is identical to the right one until you reach the thumb gusset.

Rib of the knitting mittens:

Cast on 32 stitches on DPN’s. (I have used long tail cast on). Redistribute evenly - 8 stitches each needle. Now join to knit in round.

Round 1: Begin with rib 1 by 1 *knit 1, purl 1* keep repeating 19-20 rounds until ribbing measures 7 cm from the edge.

Round of increase: In this round we are going to increase. I would like to use method that I like the most - *knit one stitch from the previous round, p – repeat from * around.

Knitting the first step in the round of increase

Knitting the second step in the round of increase

Knitting the third step in the round of increase

Knitting the forth step in the round of increase

Now you have 48 stitches on your needles.

    Can circular needles be used instead of pointed ones? If so….will the pattern be the same to follow? Tks

    • annanitato_175

      Hi, of course you can use circular needles. There will be no changes in the pattern. Good luck!

    Do you have instructions for a two year old?

    • editor

    Any suggestions for making this a bigger size? For wrist size 18cm – 19cm?

    • editor

      Hi, just add 2-4 more stitches to a ribbing part. Main part will definitely suit you.

      • Emerald

        Thanks! I added some stitches to the rib part and it fits well but I’ll still need to add another repeat of the body! I’ve got man hands lol
