Mistletoe Mittens (double knit)

mittens2

 

Designed by Pat Novak, Knit by Unknown knitter

Loom: All-n-One Loom set up for double knit with 1cm spacer

Stitches: Rib Stitch and Stockinette

Yarn:  Plymouth Encore Chunky wool/acrylic blend.  1 skein of red and 1/2 skein multi pink. Or, use any wool/acrylic #6 yarn of choice in 2 colors.  (R)=red, (M)=Multi

Notions: Knit hook, crochet hook, large sewing needle, (2) heavy duty stitch holders for thumbs

Size: Youth small and (medium adult) Youth- Folded Mitten: cuff to top=10”   Width at bottom of thumb=4.5”  Thumb length=3”  Cuff width=3.5”

Gauge: 3 sts and 5 rows=1”

INSTRUCTIONS

Cast on 22 (26) stitches in stockinette with (M) yarn. Place anchor yarn.

Work (6) rows in rib stitch.

Tie on (R) yarn at 2nd stitch. Cut and knot (M) yarn.

Work 8 (10) rows in rib stitch with (R) yarn.

Change to stockinette and work (2) rows.

Next row, increase one stitch each end.

Work row in stockinette.

Work 3 (4) additional rows in stockinette.

 

Increase Row:

You will increase 6 (8) times across row. This means you need to shuffle all the loops on your pegs over to create 6 (8) open pegs. Move loops outward on pegs 3, 7, and 12 ( and 14 for larger size) on left side of loom, creating open pegs. Do the same thing on right side. Do this to both boards.   Pick up loops from previous row on pegs adjacent to open pegs and place the loops onto the open pegs. You now have 6 (8) additional stitches.

Work the 30 (36) stitches for 2 (4) additional rows.

Thumb Opening:

Slip center 10 stitches onto a stitch holder, one for each board. Drop the holders with loops secured, thru the boards, so that the holders are below the boards. Shift the 10 (13) loops of each side together, so that they are adjacent to each other in center. Do this slowly and carefully as it is important.

thumb2

At center of loom, lift loop on peg 10 and 11. Place loop 10 on peg 11. Place loop 11 on peg 10. Do this to both boards. This twist will reinforce the thumb, and pull the stitches together.  Larger size, use the loops on pegs 11 and 12.

Work additional 12 (16) rows in stockinette.

 

 

Decrease Row:

Decrease (1) stitch each end. Simply place first and last stitch, on each board, onto adjacent pegs so that these pegs now have 2 loops and there are new empty peg at each end of loom.

At center, place (2) center loops onto the adjacent pegs, one to right and one to left.

This creates (2) open pegs in center.

Work row in stockinette, skipping the open pegs in center of loom. Hook over all stitches, and work the pegs with 2 loops as one.   All pegs will have just one loop.

Move loops over to center with no open pegs.

Repeat the decrease row.

Hook over, so that all pegs have just one loop.

Shift all loops over to meet the other set of loops, so that they are adjacent, with no open pegs.

Repeat the decrease row (2) additional times.

Shift all loops on one board over to meet the other set of loops on opposite board.

You have 2 loops on all pegs on one board. Bind off by lifting both loops and pulling 2 loops thru 2 loops. Knot at end of board. Remove from loom.

Thumb Finishing:

Place the (10) thumb loops back onto the boards from the stitch holders. This will be tight, so you may want to pull up on all 10 loops on each stitch holder to loosen them up before trying to transfer them back to loom.

Be sure to place them directly across, so that both pegs of each stitch are lined up.

Tie in yarn (R) to 2nd inside stitch.

Work in stockinette for 2 (3) rows.

Tie on (M) yarn. Cut (R) yarn and knot.

Work in stockinette for 6 (8) rows with (M) yarn.

Decrease all stitches by placing loop 1 onto 2 and 3 onto 4, and 5 onto 6, 7 onto 8, and 9 onto 10. This leaves 2 loops on every other peg and an empty peg between. Hook over, one over one.

Move all loops together, so that there are no empty pegs.

Cut yarn with a 10” tail for sewing the thumb.

Thread yarn tail onto sewing needle. To remove the mitten from loom, transfer the loops onto the yarn tail. Hold loops on yarn and remove the loom.

Bind Off at anchor yarn with 2-loop method or crochet across the loops for even edge.

Sewing:

Fold mitten over.

Sew thumb with yarn tail, easing the top edges to a rounded finish.

Secure well at base of thumb.

Sew mitten with matching yarn for each section of mitten, easing in the top for a nice oval shape. Continue sewing to close in the mitten.

Tuck in all yarn tails.

Repeat all for the 2nd mitten.

  • These are precious! I can’t wait to knit some for the grand kids and a pair for me as well. These Advent knitting patterns are just the greatest idea…thanks for doing this for us!

  • These are AWESOME!!! I really need to try this!!!

  • If I wanted to make these larger, for men, what would you recommend?

  • Thanks, Jacquelyn. The mitts were actually knit by an Unknown knitter. I just wrote the pattern for everyone to share. They will now be donated in our Holiday program for American Vets and Homeless children. We will be shipping about Dec 20 to these organizations.

  • Hi Alyna, The cuff is plenty large for woman or man in the adult size, but it can be enlarged with cast on of 28 stitches. You can make the palm longer by working a few more rows before the thumb opening. Then, when you do the increase row, you an add another 2 or 4 increases. You can also make the finger area longer by working more rows before the decrease rows. Just be sure you start your mitten in center of the loom so you will have plenty of room for the increases. If you add another 2 inc to the increase row, and another 2 to the cast on, you will be working on 40 pegs until the decrease starts.

  • Hi Catherine, I know you’ll have fun with this, as it’s easy and fun. Thanks, Pat

  • These mitts look so soft and cozy. I love the pattern name, too!

  • Hi Jenny, Thanks. They just made me think of mistletoe. Have a great holiday.

Whimsical Loom Knits – Kitty Mitts

Kitty Mitts

Fall is here and the air is getting chilly.  These adorable little mitts are a wonderfully fun way to keep a little pair of hands warm.  Break out a pair of Kitty Mitts and watch the smiles come out to play.   

IMG_3242 (1024x782)

Materials

Knitting Loom:  2 KB Zippy Looms, connected together (total of 8 pegs)

Yarn:  Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in black (less than 1 skein will be needed)

Notions:  Knitting tool, scissors, yarn needle with large eye, needle and thread, tape measure

7/8” wide sheer ribbon- 2 cuts, each measuring 25” in length, pink yarn or embroidery thread to stitch nose, gray yarn or embroidery thread to use for whiskers, and 4 green LaMode buttons (style # 34555).

Finished Size:  Approximately 7.5” in height by 4” in width.  (Best suited for a child’s hands).

Gauge:  Not essential for this project.

Techniques

Flat Knit Stitch:  Bring the working yarn in front of the peg to be worked, above the existing stitch on the peg, without bending the yarn around the peg.  Knit the lower stitch over the working yarn.

Basic Bind Off:  Knit the first two pegs.  Move the stitch from the second peg over to the first peg.  Knit the lower stitch over the upper stitch.  One stitch has now been bound off. Move the stitch from peg 1 to the empty peg.  This is now peg 1.  Knit the next stitch.  Move the stitch that was just knit over to the first peg.  Knit the lower stitch over the upper stitch.  Continue working in this manner until there is one stitch left. Cut the working yarn, leaving a yarn tail that is at least 4” long.  Wrap the yarn tail around the last peg.  Knit the last stitch over the yarn tail and pull the yarn tail out through the stitch.  Bind off is now complete.

Gathered Bind Off:  Loosely wrap the working yarn in a circle around all of the pegs that have stitches – two times.  This will ensure that the yarn tail is long enough to complete the bind off.  Cut the working yarn, then unwrap the long yarn tail from around the pegs.  Lay the yarn tail below the stitch on peg 1.  Using the knitting tool, pull the yarn tail up through the stitch.  *Lay the yarn tail below the next stitch.  Using the knitting tool, pull the yarn tail up through the stitch.  Repeat from * for all stitches on the loom.  Once all stitches have been bound, remove the knitting from the loom.  Pull on the yarn tail to cinch the opening closed (unless otherwise directed by the pattern being worked).  Bind off is now complete.

Instructions

Panels: (make 4)

Leave a yarn tail measuring 18” long.  Cast on 8 stitches.  Knit 20 rows using the flat knit stitch.  Bind off using the basic bind off method, leaving a 50” yarn tail.  Note:  The bind off end of each panel will be the cuff end of the mitts.  Set panels aside for now.

Thumb: (make 2)

Cast on 6 stitches.  Knit 6 rows using the flat knit stitch.  Cut the yarn, leaving a 14” yarn tail.  Bind off using the gathered removal method.  Seam the side of the thumb closed.

IMG_3228 (800x600)

Weave in both yarn tails and set aside for now.

Assembly:

*Lay one panel on top of another, knit sides facing outward.

IMG_3230 (600x800)

Using the long yarn tail, seam the left side of the mitt closed.

Whip stitch across the top of the mitt, being careful not to gather the top.

Seam down the right side of the mitt, stopping after 3.5” of the side has been seamed closed.  Weave in the yarn tail.

Using the remaining long yarn tail at the bottom of the mitt, seam up the right side of the mitt, stopping after 2”.

Using the same yarn tail, sew the thumb piece to the mitt, setting it into the opening on the right side of the mitt.

IMG_3233 (800x600)

Weave in the yarn tail.

There should be 2 yarn tails left – one in each corner, at the top of the mitt.  Using the tape measure, measure 2” in from the top left corner of the mitt.  Stick a pin or needle in to mark this measurement.

IMG_3235 (800x600)

Thread the yarn tail at this corner into a yarn needle.  Weave the yarn tail down through the inside of the mitt, bringing it back out near the lowest end of the pin or needle that is marking the 2” measurement.

Sew in a diagonal line, just above the marking pin or needle, creating an ‘ear’.  Make sure to pass all the way through the mitt, catching the top and bottom panel as you work.  While working, keep the stitches tight.  This will help to gather this area in a bit and create the desired shape.

Repeat this process on the other side of the mitt, creating a second ‘ear’.  Weave both of these yarn ends in.  Set mitt aside for now.

Repeat from * for the second mitt.

Finishing:

With the needle and thread, sew two buttons to the top of each mitt, slightly lower than the lowest point of the ears.  (If making this item for a young child, embroider the eyes on with yarn or embroidery thread, instead of using buttons.)

With the pink yarn or embroidery thread, stitch a little v below the eyes for a ‘nose’.  Do this for each mitt.

Cut four lengths of gray yarn, each measuring 8” in length.  Take two of the strands of gray yarn and tie them into a stitch on one side of the nose.  (The yarn needle comes in handy here.)  Take the remaining two strands of gray yarn and tie them into a stitch on the other side of the nose.  Trim the whiskers to the desired length.

Thread an end of the ribbon through the eye of the yarn needle.  Using the yarn needle, weave the ribbon through the stitches around the cuff area of a mitt.

IMG_3237 (600x800)

Once the ribbon has been woven through the stitches all the way around the cuff of the mitt, tie the ends into a cute little bow.  Repeat this process for the second mitt.

Wishing you a warm and happy autumn!

Block.

Small Breast Cancer Ribbon

Using the contrasting color pink, cast on 2 stitches.

Using the figure 8 method, create an icord that is approximately 16 rows long.

Bind off leaving a long tail.

Thread long tail through tapestry needle, fold the i-cord ribbon in half and use the long tail to secure it in this folded position. Using the yarn tail, sew the ribbon to the top side area of the wrister.

ASSEMBLY

Fold over at the top, along the eyelets for the area by the fingers. Thread tapestry needle with the yarn tail coming from the bind off edge. Sew the small flap in place—see pictures for guidance on how to complete this objective. When the fold is completely sewn, use the thread to mattress stitch along the top side, approximately one-inch along the side. Weave ends in.

Thread tapestry needle with yarn coming from the cast on edge, mattress stitch along the side, stopping approximately one-inch away from the top seam—you should have about a one-inch opening for the thumb.

Pass the elasticized ribbon through the eyelets along the wrist, make a small bow. Sew the bow, do not sew the bow to the knitted fabric, so the bow does not come undone.

Assembly
Before assembly, be sure to block both panels.

The buttons will be placed on the 10th ridge of the panel, counting from the scalloped edge. Or, on the 2nd ridge from the straight edge. Place one button on each scalloped crest. I found sewing the button with regular thread easier than with yarn. The buttons are located one one ridge right before the thumbhole.

  • Which loom is suggested?

    lmk

  • Sock Loom 2.

  • Lovely.

  • Ooops! I meant for that previous comment to be attached to this wristers…they’re so pretty! :D

  • I have just purchased my first knitting board,,the sock 2. I made my first sock was a bit funky. Any tips you can give me?

  • Will you be making a video for the Vines Wristers? They are so pretty.

  • No, I was not planning a video for this project.

  • Lovely!
    Glad you have posted the instructions. The ‘free download’ pdf of this has some funky ending instruction, talking about using the kitcheners stitch to finish the toe…and to be careful when putting beads on socks since they might not be comfortable to wear with shoes!
    lol

    After the Peaks wristers pattern in one of the books (my current project), this one should be easy enough to figure out. :-) (hoping!)
