Free Knitting Patterns – Mittens and Gloves

Free Pattern Friday is here again!

Everyone loves small projects. Socks, washcloths, and of course, mittens and gloves. Tis the time of year, up here in the Northern Hemisphere, to start thinking along those lines. MIttens and gloves make great gifts, everyone can use them, and they’re quick to knit and portable. You can go super easy, and you can be a bit more challenging. You can do everything from stockinette stitch to elegant lace. Fairisle sound like fun? Go for it! Want to try your hand at other colorwork? Mittens and gloves are perfect. And very practical! Practice and learn new techniques. Sounds like it’s right up your alley? I’ve compiled a few free mittens and glove patterns for you to check out.

    I have been trying to print the classic Mittens pattern. You only give part of the instructions for knitting the pattern, Will you be correcting this mistake?
