Mittens with a Flap
These are a very loose adaptation of a generic mitten pattern, knitted more tightly than I generally found in the patterns I was perusing online. I added the flaps, because I like mittens with flaps! If you don’t want to do a gauge swatch, it’s fine by me…just try the things on as you go, and take notes as you knit (so the second one will match!).
In December 2011, I added instructions for DK weight yarn. The green mitts are knit with the Snowflake Wool Blend, but any DK weight yarn will work! If you saved the pattern to your library before December 2011, please download the updated version to get these edits!
If you like your flap-mittens to be “thumbless,” don’t knit the thumb when you get there. Instead, do a a few rows of ribbing, and bind off. I promise not to turn you in to the knitting police…in fact I will gladly harbor you if they are trying to run you in! :)
Have fun, and Knit in Good Health!
