Generic Mittens Knit Flat
This pattern was developed so that a class of high school students could learn a variety of basic techniques, experience what it means to adapt sizing and gauge to one’s own needs, and incorporate their own colourwork designs into an otherwise blank piece. As a result, no specific yarn information, needle size, or decorative motif is provided. Please see individual projects for more information and ideas.
Note: Beginning knitters may prefer the Simple Mittens (Knit Flat) pattern, which was adapted from this pattern and which gives specific numbers to follow (rather than open-ended, formula-based instructions). Check out that pattern’s projects pages to see more examples of how this mitten construction plays out for different ravelers.
