These classic colorwork mittens offer a great canvas for playing with color! We were drawn to a tone-on-tone combination of natural browns and greys, but brighter and more colorful combinations are also enticing. Although 4 colors are required for the pattern, you will only ever be working with 2 colors on any given round. Beginning with a ribbed hem, the mittens are worked circularly from the bottom up and feature a side-gore thumb.


  • Mittens are worked in the round from bottom up.
  • Thumb is worked using side-gore shaping; upon completion of the gusset, thumb stitches are placed on waste yarn and the remainder of the mitten is worked circularly to fingertips.
  • Mitten tops are grafted closed using Kitchener Stitch.
  • Upon completion of main body of mitten, you will return to the held stitches at the gusset and work the Thumb circularly.


• Color 1 (C1): Pumpernickel; approximately 60 yards
• Color 2 (C2): Woodsmoke; approximately 55 yards
• Color 3 (C3): Truffle Hunt; approximately 50 yards
• Color 4 (C4): Stormcloud; approximately 50 yards
