Wicker knitting set: knitted mitten patterns

Knit mitten pattern

In order to finish a wicker knitting set I have decided to knit mittens. 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.

Pick up 2 stitches from the both sides (using 3rd and 4th dpn). In order to avoid holes while picking (2 stitches from the right and 2 stitches from the left) try to twist them.

Redistribute stitches – 4 stitches each needle. Knit in stockinette stitch until desired thumb’s length.

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

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