2-needle mittens

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Chunky

GAUGE:

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

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.

2-needle mittens Reviewed by JoAnn Hepsley on 2012-01-20 *****
I love this pattern. I must have made 10 pairs of mittens for my grand children last winter with just the leftover yarn from other projects. I hadn't knit for years and these were so simple. I made both mittens at one time and had the 24 month size done in about 3 hours. I added a chain stitch string so they would not get lost.
