This pattern is for a basic bulky weight mitten with a ribbed cuff, a thumb gusset, and a fitted, tapered hand. The mittens are designed to have a close fit for maximum warmth.

Shown in Koigu Bulky, you will need 1 (2, 2) skeins. Note that there were almost no leftovers on the small size with only one skein, for insurance you should buy a second.

You could also knit these in washable Cascade 128 Superwash, and would need 1 (1, 2) skeins. With this yarn, the medium size comes close to using all the yarn, and you may wish to buy a second.

These mitts make great quick gift knitting! Mine were gifted to Karen at Shall We Knit? who will eventually get to wear them after they are no longer shop samples.

This pattern was professionally tech edited by Kate Atherley at and beautifully and efficiently photographed by Gillian Martin at It’s amazing how great a motivator the cold can be.
