On the needles: 2 year old’s mittens

Most of the patterns I’ve seen on Ravelry seem to involve knitting mittens and gloves in the round, on dpns. Now don’t get me wrong, I can manage fine with dpns – I’ve done many a hat on them, and even a pair of socks. But mittens confuse me every time. No matter how hard I try, I cannot work out how the thumb part works.

So I was really pleased to find this pattern by Nell Armstrong at Freevintageknitting.com

2 needle mittens knitting pattern

These are a great quick knit, and if your toddler is anything like L, and prone to losing gloves at the drop of a hat (thus rendering all those snazzy coats with matching button-on gloves entirely useless!), you can easily knit an i-cord or similar between the two mittens so they can go through the armholes of your toddler’s coat. Voila! One pair of un-loseable mittens!


I love all things fantasy, from fiction to films to games. Mostly books though. I also love cooking and plus size fashion. Find recommendations for great fantasy reads and general fangirling here! If you want to get in touch with me, the quickest way is by Twitter @dorristheloris
