This is a basic pattern for mittens, completely free. I made a few pairs for a charity knitting campaign this year and decided to note down the pattern. I hope it’s useful for someone who is trying to knit mittens for the first time. The pattern is in one size, but can be customized easily with adding a few more stitches or rows.
Happy knitting!
