Suggested Yarn: 1 skein Fiber for the People® yarn in Merino Worsted (218 yards/100 grams), the neutral mitts were knit in Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool—a personal favorite if you’re on a budget!

Gauge: 20 sts and 27 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Needles: US 7 DPNS* (or long circular for Magic Loop) or size needed to obtain gauge.

Notions: stitch markers, stitch holder or waste yarn, and darning needle for weaving in ends.

Sizing: Small(Medium, Large)
To fit palm width: 2 ¾ in.(3 ¼ in., 4 in.)


This is a two-in-one pattern. You have the pattern for the long, tapered mitts in three sizes, as well as a pattern for the shorter, non-tapered version in three sizes.

Be sure to bind-off all sections purl-wise to make a clean edge that matches the cast-on edge. This isn’t crucial, as the edges will naturally curl, but for those of us who prefer matching cast-on and bind-off edges, this helps.

If you tend to leave ladders when using DPNs (like me) they will be noticeable in this knit. Be sure to pull tightly on the second stitch on each needle or try the Magic Loop.
