Have you been wanting to knit mittens but don’t know where to start? Do the patterns requiring double pointed needles scare you? Is knitting in-the-round a technique you don’t feel ready for?
Look no further! You can knit mittens on straight needles! I’ve rounded up 9 beginner mitten knitting patterns. All of them are knitted flat on two straight needles and then sewn closed.
Some of the mitten patterns below are free, others charge a small free; all are PDF downloads so you can get started mitten knittin’ right away!
The patterns include very beginner projects as well as some to take your knitting to the next level – below you’ll find classic, ribbed cuff, cable cuff, Fair Isle, cable back, garter stitch, and striped mittens.
