Hello fellow knitter! The leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping, so it’s time for hot drinks and warm mittens. I love a hot pumpkin spiced beverage this time of year. So, for those of us who believe a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove can make the world a better place, I have made a mitten pattern.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help or have any suggestions, then this topic in my Ravelry group is the best place for support. Happy knitting!

Some practical info


  • 1 x 50g skein of each colour
  • Max 150m for MC and 100m for CC


  • 1 x DPNs or magic loop circular gauge size needle
  • 1 x DPNs or magic loop circular 1/2 below gauge size needle

Gauge & sizes

  • Gauge ranges from 34 to 24 sts = 10cm/4”, depending on size
  • Sizes ranges from 9cm width (pre-teen) to 15cm width (men’s xl), depending on gauge
  • In other words, gauge is important to achieve the desired size.


  • If you are completely lost regarding needles, gauge and size, I can tell you that the average knitter would likely get an average women’s size using 2.5mm/US1 1/2 needles.
  • This is a bit of a gamble though, as everyone’s tension differs.

The suggested yarns are categorised as different weights (sport, fingering, 4ply). This is often because these yarns are from countries that don’t use these categories. However, if you hold strands from each yarn together side by side, you’ll notice they look very much the same.
