Holiday Mini Mittens


Perfect as individuals, to add to a gift or use as a zipper pull. But make lots of them and you have a garland! We love to decorate trees, bannisters, wreaths, windows and hearths with our adorable mini mittens.


What It's All About

Okay, there’s one more item that every knitter should have hanging as an ornament on the Christmas tree… miniature mittens! You can make these tiny mittens as tree trimming, as a gift, use them as a zipper pull or to bob around on the end of your hat strings.  Knit several and you'll have a garland!  In this class, we'll guide you through knitting these small mitts, from the ribbing at the cuff to the left- and right-slanting decreases at the top. We'll show you how to make and afterthought thumb and i-cord for hangers and garland string. A Mini Mitten Garland kit is included in your registration fee, so you only need to come with needles. How sweet is that? 

Skill Level

Students should know how to knit in the round on double pointed needles (dpns), two circulars or magic loop. We recommend taking our KITR: Seamless Hat class for DPNs or Magic Loop first if you haven't knit small things in the round before.

Please bring:

  • one set of 2.5 or 2.75mm knitting needles for working small circumferences: your choice of double pointed needles (set of four), two circulars or one long circular for magic loop.

  • a stitch marker and tapestry needle


  • River City Yarn's Mini Mitten Garland kit (30g of fingering weight yarn in our exclusive Hat Trick line and pattern);

  • Two hours of instruction (and the start of a fun, new tradition)!
