The Simple Mittens is a very easy mittens knitting pattern. It is worked with double pointed needles. I know a lot of you dread using double pointed needles and find them confusing but this is the perfect project to start getting friendly with them. If you have never knitted with double pointed needles, don’t panic! It looks hard but is very easy and I’ll walk you through every step with a detailed photo tutorial.
The easy mittens design is very sober and can easily be used for men and woman depending on the yarn color chosen of course.
