Easy Knit Mittens
"The Easy Knit Mittens are perfect for the new knitter wanting to branch out from scarves and hats. These mittens are knit flat on two needles and seamed. When I was a beginner knitter, I remember wanting to branch out from just scarves and flat projects, but I was totally intimidated by double pointed needles. I knit a few hats flat and liked those, but eventually I wanted even more challenges to stretch my skills. (Which means I learned how to use dpn’s because there weren’t a lot of patterns knit flat!) I created these mittens to be knit flat so that someone in my position years ago could make and gift these with pride – without having to learn dpn’s or circulars.
