Quick Knitted Gifts – Mittens and Mitts

Time for another round of quick knit ideas for holiday gifts. There is still plenty of time to whip up a pair of any one of these patterns before Christmas rolls around! (Or – forget about knitting for others. Knit them up for yourself.) Here are a few mitten/fingerless mitt patterns to get you thinking?

Mom’s Cabled Knits (uses 150 yards of worsted weight yarn.)


Delicato Mitts (uses 150 yards of fingering weight yarn.)


Super Bulky Mittens (uses 66 yards of super bulky yarn.)


Fetching Mitts (uses 100-200 yards of bulky yarn.)


Flocked Mittens (uses worsted weight yarn.)


All the Water Mittens (uses 150-175 yards of worsted weight.)


Of course there are plenty of other wonderful patterns that I have on my favorites list and have not yet made: 

Mittens: Doodle Mittens, The Secret, Winter Wonder Mittens, Nordic Night Mitts, Wood Hollow MittensBasic Men’s Mittens and Pixie Farts.

Mitts: Vampolka, Lady Eowyn, Susie Rogers Reading Mitts, Quinault, Welted Fingerless Gloves, Belle Rubble Gloves, and Nereid Fingerless Gloves.

What other mitten and mitt favorites do you have? Leave them in the comments so we can check them out. Then pick a new pattern and pop over for some yarn! (For other quick knit ideas, check out the Quick Knitted Gifts – Cowls post I did in mid-November.)

  1. I made a pair of Bella’s Mittens for my daughter, who is a Twilight fan, and they turned out very nice, considering I have very little experience with cables. I’m thinking of making a pair for myself.

  2. I have made Fetching, and I used a sport weight (or maybe something lighter) yarn. They were awesome. I gave them as a gift, so I should make another pair for me.

  3. I just finished my 2nd pair of Plain Jhaynes — fingerless mitts in laceweight yarn. Mine are taking about 16 grams, so I might even be able to squeeze 3 pair out of the skein of loveliness I had in my stash. I also plan to make some more to use up that little bit extra that I have left from some of my shawls.
