Cozy in the Mountains Mittens
A fun, simplistic pattern, the Cozy in the Mountains Mittens are thick, warm, and cozy. The design is minimalistic with a touch of interest through a large off-centered cable on the back of each hand. The knit is quick and enjoyable.
The techniques used in this pattern are relatively simple and catered toward an adventurous beginner knitter. The techniques include working the thumb and working cables in the round. More information on techniques can be found here.
Yarn requirements differ based on size but range from 70 to 150 yards of super bulky yarn. For more information on yarn requirements, click here. Please pay attention to the specifics of this yarn, because it is thicker than some other super bulky weight yarns. Alternatively, you may use bulky weight yarn held double.
The design is inspired by the cold Canadian mountain ranges. In the cold, warmth is your main concern, not fancy patterning, but I also wanted to include cables -- which seem so cozy to me! The design is simplistic but beautiful. Practical, but elegant. The large, simple cable looks like mountain peaks when turned sideways!
Cozy in the Mountains is one of two super bulky weight knitting patterns in the Next Door Neighbors Collection, inspired by the Canadian landscape.
The Cozy in the Mountains Mittens are just what they sound and look like: cozy. These are the perfect mittens for when you know you'll be outdoors for a while in the cold, whether you're watching a sports game or playing with the kids at the park.
This knit is super quick, simple, and fun. The large cables require just a little bit of attention every few rows, but the majority of the knit is just ribbing or stockinette. It is a great knit for gift knitting or if you need a simple knit to keep you occupied as you wind down at night.
The techniques used in the Cozy in the Mountains Mittens pattern are relatively simple: the majority of the knitting is knits and purls. The pattern also includes knitting stitches together, increases, and cables. The pattern is written for an adventurous beginner knitter wanting to learn how to make mittens or interested in practicing cables in the round.
All of my patterns include clear, step-by-step (written and charted) instructions and linked video technique tutorials that walk you through the pattern with confidence and joy. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.
