Simple Fingerless Mittens – A Knitting Pattern



Hello! Alliyah here from TheYarnFox again! Hobium and I have partnered to bring you a simple, beginner friendly fingerless mitten pattern using the Kartopu Rubin Wool which is available on their website in many colors! .

Kartopu Rubin Wool is a great choice for all of your projects that use bulky (weight 6) yarn! You can find it here on Hobium’s website!

Mittens are a quintessential Fall item, and they’re fun to make, too! The mittens that we’ll be making today are fingerless, so you can use your phone without taking them off! Let’s get started!

You will need: 

  1. About 50 meters of Kartopu Rubin Chunky Tweed Yarn in your favorite color(s). I used Beige – K899 and Grey – K1006
  2. 10mm circular or double point knitting needles
  3. Scissors
  4. Yarn needle


  1. The mitten is worked in the round until you reach the thumb hole. To make the thumb hole, you will work flat, turning after each row for a couple rows. After the thumb hole is made, you’ll resume working in the round.
  2. You can make your mittens longer by working more rounds where directed.


Make two identical mittens 


Cast on 18 stitches and join to work in the round.

Round 1:  *K1, P1* Repeat from *to* across the round (18sts)

Round 2-7: Repeat Round 1

Round 8-15: Knit across


If you would like to make your mitten longer, repeat round 8 until you’re satisfied with the length. 

this is what Round 17 should look like, when you turn and begin to purl 

These next few rows will be worked flat, and you will turn at the end of each row.

Round 16: Knit 18, turn 

Round 17: Purl 18, turn 

Round 18: Knit 18, turn

Round 19: Purl 18, turn 

Round 20: Knit 18, turn 

Round 21: Purl 18, turn 

Round 22: K18, and join back in the round

You will now begin working in the round again 

Round 23-26: Knit across 

Round 27-30: *K1, P1* Repeat from *to* across the round

Bind off loosely and weave in all your ends!

And you’re finished! Try them on and make a few more pairs for your friends, your shop, and your craft shows!

And don’t forget! You can always order more Kartopu Rubin Chunky Tweed as well as many other great yarns from Hobium Yarns!
