This mitten pattern is a fun, simple knit with a heart on each mitten. Because the heart is located on the palm of the hand and is knit in the same yarn as the rest of the mitten, the heart is a hidden gem that’s sure to make you smile. The mittens are interchangeable, if you’d like to wear the heart on the outside of your hand instead.

I recommend knitting these mittens out of a solid, tonal, semi-solid, or lightly speckled yarn. The busier the yarn, the more “hidden” your hearts will be. The mittens are interchangeable, if you’d like to wear the heart on the outside of your hand instead. The pattern also includes instructions if you wish to make a pair of finger-less mittens instead.

This pattern includes the written instructions and heart charts for reference only. The sizes correspond to 2-4 yrs (4-6 yrs, 6-8 yrs, small women’s, large women’s/small men’s, medium men’s, and large men’s) sizing.

If you’re looking to make an extra-warm pair of mittens, I recommend using a wool-based yarn. You may also choose to sew a liner for the mittens using felt or fleece fabric.

This pattern is ideal for beginner knitters who know how knit and purl and are looking to learn a few new techniques! It uses the knit, purl, M1L, and M1R stitches. It also requires a bind off, cast on, knitting through the back loop, and picking up stitches. If you are unfamiliar with any of these techniques, do not be intimidated. You will quickly get the hang of them!


I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of my test knitters!
