I had a request for a mitten that’s the size of the tiny sock…not the earring size sock, the 18″ doll size sock! So, I sat down at the machine with some needles in and was doing my darnedest to make a tiny mitten when Sue told me what I needed to be doing. In short, we (read Sue) came up with this. it’s fun, fast and a great project…Get the pattern here!
Start by cranking out a tube with a hung hem. You can use any cylinder you like for this project. Cast on then change to project yarn and crank 10 rows. Hang a hem. Crank 55-60 more rows and remove project from machine. Remove waste yarn then TURN THE KNITTING INSIDE OUT (ask me why that’s in all caps!! haha).
You will need to print the pattern page and make sure that you printed it actual size. You’ll know this because you can measure the mitten to make sure the printed one you have is 4″ tall. Cut out the mitten shape. Line up the bottom of the knit tube (the end with the hung hem) with the pattern. Take this to the sewing machine and sew around the pattern. Trim out the mitten shape leaving 1/4″ seam allowance. Turn the mitten right side out. And there you have a mitten!
