Knifty Knitter Mitten Patterns

Updated on September 17, 2014

Free Mitten Patterns for the Knifty Knitter Looms

When I think of handmade knit, it brings to mind the mittens, scarves and hats that grandma gave me for Christmas gifts as a child. You can make a pair of mittens for your favorite person this winter. The Knifty Knitters make it quick and easy to do. You can also make a pair for yourself, customizing the yarn and style to get the exact look you want. Choose the color to go with your favorite coat. There are patterns below for all ages children through adults. Did you know that you can make mittens on both long and round looms?

The Blue Round Loom

The following patterns are made using this blue round loom. It measures 5 1/4 inches wide. It's about the right size for socks and mittens for older children and adults. It also makes hats the right size for a doll or preemie.

 

Provo Craft Mitten Patterns for All Sizes - Size Fit Small Child Through Adult

This free pattern from Provo Craft requires 2-3 hours to knit. The pattern adjusts for various sizes, so you can use it to make mittens for kids or for an adult. It's a very basic pattern that I think is perfect for those new to looming mittens. The cuff has a nice ribbing to keep them in place and keep them snug around the wrist. These are the first mittens that I knitted and after trying many others, it continues to be my favorite.


Skill Level: Intermediate

You will need:

* Blue Round Loom

* Knitting Hook

* Yarn Needle

* 4-ply worsted weight

Mittens Pattern for an Adult Female - From the Looming with Love Blog

This free pattern requires 2-3 hours to knit. This pattern begins at the bottom and you knit 10 rows, then bring the first row back on to the loom to form a cuff. This is the same process that is used to make the brim of a hat. After making the cuff around the wrist, you then continue knitting up the body of the glove and sew the thumb together at the end of the project.

YouTube Video Instructions

Many people tell me that they prefer video instructions to written ones, so here they are. You can watch several mitten demonstrations right here on this page. The video is of Bethany Dailey's pattern. It uses two strands of yarn held together as one. It is easy to slip these on and off, but they aren't as snug at the wrist as I like them. There are two parts to this video, the thumbnails below can guide you to the second part after you've watched the first.
