This fairly easy pattern is written for 2 sizes to fit larger hands, ie. men, and features a knit in thumb gusset for comfort and good fit. The smaller size has a finished length of 11 inches and a hand circumference of 8 inches. The larger size is 12 inches in length and 8.75 inches in circumference.

About 200 to 350 yards of worsted weight yarn and a stitch holder are required for these wonderfully textured mittens. The model was made with Red Heart Soft, but any worsted weight yarn will work as long as you get gauge.

It’s written for two circular needles in size 5, but converting for double points or Magic Loop should be fairly easy.

Pattern is 4 pages long and is a 212K PDF file.
