Wyoming Spring Mitts

I designed this pattern to go with Yarnster by Shannon Cook

Average adult

DK or worsted weight wool(worsted will be a little larger, so adjust your needle size if needed), I used a hand dyed from Your Daily Fiber in Ft. Collins, Colorado
Size US6 dpns, I imagine that if you like to use a circular instead, you can do that, I just prefer my dpns
Stitch holder or scrap yarn to use to hold thumb gusset stitches

YO: Yarn over
K2TOG: Knit 2 together
PM: Place marker
SM: Slip marker
M1: Make one

Cast on 44 stitches ( pattern is in multiples of 4 so if you need to go up or down in size, be sure to do so in increments of 4) 

Work in 2x2 rib for 1 inch

Body Pattern:
Row 1:  YO, K2TOG, repeat around to end of row

Row 2:  Knit 

Repeat rows 1 &2 until piece measures 23/4 inches from beginning, ending with a knit row

Row 2, Knit all stitches
Row 3: YO, K2TOG, SM, M1, K1, M1, SM, * YO, K2TOG* repeat from * to * around
Row 4: Knit all stitches
Repeat in this pattern until there are 11 stitches between the markers, on the last knit row, knit the stitches between the markers then place them on stitch holder or scrap yarn and continue to end of row.

Knit 6 row
Bind off

Place stitches from stitch holder onto dpns and pick up and knit 5 stitches, making a total of 16 stitches

Row 4: Knit
Row 5 Knit

Weave in all ends and enjoy

They are actually the same color from the same skein of yarn, just the difference in lighting when they were taken.  


  1. Kaye, I love these, I will look to find some yarn and send a pair to my son's g/f in St Louis, MO... she begs for fingerless mitts, but only wants cheap yarns as she get's paint on them but they do help her hands so she wears them until they get too much paint on them.. LOL I made her one pair, maybe I can make her a set of these, if my hands cooperate that is.. LOL..
    Hugs and Loves!!
