From The Last Stitch:

Sewing pattern for mittens, inspired by the design of hand-knitted mittens. Tova has ample ease but is not an oversized mitten, this shaping is more elegant than bulky. Quick and easy to make, and you can add a lining to for extra warmth.


Measure your hand from the base to the tip of your middle finger.

XS (14.5–16 cm | 5 3/4 – 6 1/4")
S (16.5–18 cm | 6 1/2 – 7")
M (18.5–20 cm | 7 1/4 –8")
L (20.5–22 cm | 8 1/5 – 8 3/4")

Size range fit both adult and children.


Stable knits with some thickness for the gloves. The fabric should have at least 20 % stretch. Sweater knits felted wool knit and fleece are all great options. For the cuffs use rib-knit fabric. You can also refashion a sweater into mittens and use the waist or sleeve ribbing for the cuffs.

►0.30 m/0.32 yards for the gloves
