This snow mountain mittens pattern will knit up quick and the finished mitts will definitely keep your hands warm in the snow!

I wanted to share with you an easy mittens knitting pattern, that you can make in around 2 hours and is an excellent project for anyone who is learning how to knit.

The mittens are perfect for the colder weather, as they have been knit with super bulky yarn (06), in two of my favourite colours – fisherman and graphite (Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick).

Snow Mountain Mittens Pattern

Mittens

Inspired by a recent visit to Metsovo in Greece, the mittens are easy to make, with beginner knitters in mind.

Using knit and purl stitches, you will create ribbing, for the cuff, learn to knit in the round and it will also introduce you to decreasing and shaping.

This pair of mittens will be super cosy to wear in the snow and freezing temperatures.

Super Chunky Knit Mittens

I made the mittens using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in fisherman (white) and graphite (grey) – yarn weight – super bulky 06.

I knit them on size 10 mm (US 15) 16″ circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.

If you are new to using circulars, once you get used to them, they soon become your favourites to work on.

The Knitting Basics

The mittens use basic knitting stitches – knit and purl, to create 1×1 ribbing for the cuffs of the mittens.

If you are a beginner it will also introduce you to shaping through simple decreases for the top of the mittens and for the thumb.
