Counting Ridges Mittens
What could be easier than casting on and counting ridges until you have completed an adorable, squishy garter stitch mitten? Nothing much! This bulky yarn mitten pattern is one of my favorites because it is incredibly quick to knit, it fits so well and it’s so easy to memorize. I’ve provided five sizes from toddler to adult-large. That should cover most anyone from babies, kids, teens to adults. You can, of course, easily modify the lengths of the cuffs, hands, and thumbs to suit your preferences. There is something so classic, cozy and old-fashioned about these Counting Ridges Mittens. I know you will fall in love with knitting, gifting and wearing them.
