2-needle mittens

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky


16 sts and 24 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st 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.

Using smaller needles and leaving 10 inches tail, cast on 25 (29, 35, 41) sts.
Row 1 (WS)
P1, (k1, p1) across.
Row 2
K1, (p1, k1) across.

Rep Rows 1-2 for approx 2 (2 ½, 3, 3 ½) inches , ending with RS row. Change to larger needles. Beg with a purl row, work 3 (5, 7, 9) St st rows.

Row 3 K to marker, slip marker, M1, k to last st before 2nd marker, M1, slip marker, k to end.

Rep rows 2-3 until there are 9 (11, 13, 15) sts between markers. P33 (39, 47, 55) sts.

Palm (RS) K12 (14, 17, 20) sts; remove markers and place the 9 (11, 13, 15) sts on stitch holder or strand of yarn; k12 (14, 17, 20) — 24 (28, 34, 40) sts. Cont in St st until piece measures approx 5 (6, 9, 10) inches from beg. End on a WS row, placing a marker between two center sts.

Top Shaping: Row 1 (RS) *Ssk, k to within 2 sts of marker, k2tog; ssk, k to within last 2 sts, k2tog. rep from *, ending row with k2tog. Row 2 P. Rep these 2 rows 1 (2, 3, 4) times - 16 (16, 18, 20) sts. Next Row (all sizes) K2tog across. Next Row P across. Break yarn, leaving a 10 inches tail. Using yarn needle and beg with last st on needle, pull tail through rem sts 2 times, pulling tightly.

Thumb Top With RS facing, return sts from holder to larger needle. Join yarn and k across. Next row P3 (4, 5, 6), p2tog, p4 (5, 6, 7). Work 2 (2, 4, 6) more rows in St st. Last row K2tog around.

2-needle mittens Reviewed by Abbey on 2015-12-02 ****
The med size thumb is to small.. Had to add a few more rows. Gonna change the needle size to 5-7 for med to give alittle more room. But I like the pattern..just changed a few things
