Flip Top Knit Mittens

So I’ve taken a venture into the realm of knitting starting with a gorgeous infinity scarf just using the knit stitch, a matching hat using a seed stitch and then flip top mittens.


Found some beautiful sparkly teal yarn, the brand Caron Simply Soft Party in Teal Sparkle. I used the Lion Brand free pattern here.

I made a few changes such as shortening the cuff from 3″ to 2.5″ and making the flip top about an inch longer since my fingers are long.

I may try making this pair again using only the size 6 needles to make the rest of the mitten and thumb tighter, they were a little loose for my preference. Overall happy with how they turned out, :).

Here are a few photos of the process of making the first one, lots of initial try-ons!

Learning how to start a project using double pointed needles took some learning.

Finished the cuff!

Building the mitten portion.

Thumb gusset progress, you can see the little triangle, :).

Think it’s finally long enough.

Finished the main mitten portion, aka a fingerless glove with thumb.

The initial flip top. Took me awhile to figure out what “pick up stitches” meant.

Made some progress on the flip top.

And the finished first mitten!

And the finished pair, :).
