These easy-to-crochet knit stitch mittens are a fun and quick beginner project you can easily complete in a weekend. You can use any yarn you want for this project, but if you watch the tutorial, you’ll notice I used a #4 worsted yarn. They turn out to be thick winter mittens, but if you require a lighter pair, I’d use a smaller yarn.

If you plan to use a lighter yarn, here are some hook-to-yarn size suggestions:

Yarn Hook
#1 sock or fingering 3 mm
#2 sport/ baby 3.5 mm
#3 DK yarn 5 mm
#4 medium 6 mm
#5 bulky 9 mm

What you’ll need:

Yarn: Yarn: Approx. 394 yards (360 m) of a #4 medium yarn. This makes about 2 pairs of medium mittens.

Tunisian Hook : 6 mm

Additional materials: Scissors, & needle (any needle you can fit your yarn through will work). 

Notes: You will use knit and purl stitches for this pattern.

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
