Bev's 2 Needle Knit Mittens for Kids

By: Beverly A. Qualheim for

Keep your children's hands warm this winter with mittens. Use this free knitting pattern to make them in any color of your choice and add a bit of fun with the detailed stripes. Figuring out how to knit mittens can be daunting at first because they are usually knit with several needles. The beauty of this beginner knitting pattern is that it only uses two needles and the simple stockinette stitch to give you these adorable easy knits your children are going to love playing in all winter long.

Personally I think knitting mittens on 2 needles is quicker and easier than on four --

Nice easy pattern for a beginner ! It took me only a couple of nights to make a pair

Please tell me what needle sizing system is being used here. Mine are all in millimetres, and I assumed that's what we're being used, but the mittens that I was making for my four year old (following the instructions for the smallest size, of course) are big enough to fit me!

sorry, autocorrect changed "were" to "we're".

All my patterns are written in US terms, but I am working on adding in the metric also. I just added metric to this pattern so more people can warm those little hands this winter! Bev

looking for strip mittens for kids

You can easily add stripes to this pattern... I always do it by knitting both mittens at the same time so the stripes end up in the same place on each mitten. Just put them where you want as you knit. Bev

I have this pattern, but it's old and shows a light purple mitten with yellow and red stripes at the fingers area. I love this pattern. I have tried others, and when I get to the thumb it's so difficult. This one is much easier to follow. Thanks, Jean Stephens
