Snowman Mittens Pattern




These mittens are quick to make, and the smaller size only needs one 50-gram ball of worsted weight yarn. The design uses simple cable stitches and is charted in the directions. Enjoy!

Awesome! I knit hats and mitts for underprivileged children whose families receive Christmas hampers. I'm always looking for a fun, fresh design -- these look like a real treat! Thanks for sharing the pattern!

How cool is this ... a "picture" mitten that only uses one color of yarn. My husband's church's mitten tree will have loads of these this winter.
Thank you so much !!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE these mittens. I can't wait to make them. I especially can't wait for the weather to be cool enough for people to need them.

Your mittens are just adorable. Will make wonderful stocking stuffers for my grandchildren.

I Like your snowman mitten pattern very much! Would it be acceptable to you if I was to use the snowman part in a scarf or scarves for the Special olympics Scarf Project? The scarves are donated to the olympians.

Susan:
Yes, please feel free to adapt the pattern for personal and charity use.

(I'm writing a hat pattern to go with the mittens right now...should be available next week some time, but I hadn't considered a scarf. Cute!)

Hi Jean, I happened to come across your pattern when looking for ideas to make a hat for a local theatre production. I hope you like the result! It might be a nice accompaniment to the mittens!

These are so cute! I want to make them for myself... How do I enlarge them? Children shouldn't have all the fun!

This are super cute what a great present for kids, and an added surprise inside a hamper of food.

Would it be an acceptable use to knit these mittens for sale by a charitable organization? Our Ladies Guild has a craft sale in October and we use all the money we make to support a child in Africa, for scholarships, supporting local food pantries, etc. Knitted items left after the sale then go to Christmas giving programs and to children in need. Thanks for your wonderful pattern! I'll knit some for "Cold Kids" even if we can't sell them.

Thanks so much for allowing me to use this cute pattern. I am knitting some mitts as part of a fund raiser for the Humane Society in Kingston, Ontario, Canada
