Reversible Double-Knit Mittens for the Whole Family
This is my very 1st design. This pair of mittens is knit as one mitten, but the results are a reversible double mitten.
This is a very detailed tutorial, to learn how to double knit mittens. Every step is explained and has pictures as well. This pattern is all you need to learn how to double knit any pattern you find. Very detailed and may be a bit wordy for some knitters - I have done that for the new to the double-knitting technique. This is one of two tutorials on how to double-knit mittens. This is the basic method with easy gusset increases and top decreases.
Reversible mittens, knit at one time, becomes one inside the other joined at cuff.
Sizes :from infant to large adult
Yarns: Worsted weight
If you can knit in the round you can make these mittens. Knitting and Purling required.
Pattern flexible for sizing.
Important Note: when increasing for thumb gusset increase at least 2-4 stitches more than you would normally increase for a regular mitten. Reason, these mittens are double thick so thumb base will be very tight if you do not allow extra stitches.
Video’s, many, many pictures, detailed easy to follow instructions
These mittens are super warm, cushy and extremely comfortable to wear.
These mittens are NOT knit separately then put together later… THEY ARE TRULY DOUBLE KNIT.

Materials Needed: circular knitting needles at least 24” long 32 preferred, or 2 circular needles, or a set of double pointed needles, cable stitch holder, darning needle, split stitch markers, row counter optional.
Yarn amount varies depending on sizing and weight, I used:
Fingering weight ladies small - 73 grams total for pair
Sport weight ladies med - 90 grams total for pair
Worsted weight ladies large/men’s small - 99 grams total for pair
Worsted weight men’s med - 125 grams total for pair
Worsted weight men’s large - 157 grams total for pair
Yarn type suggested is #4 worsted weight, but pattern allows changes for thinner or thicker yarn.
This pattern can also be used for finger-less mittens stopping at the length you want and finish with the Kitchener stitch
This is totally seam-less
