Lesson 7 – Mitten Ornament

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to knit the Mitten Ornament, which comes together quickly and is adorable when hanging on the Christmas tree. The pattern also provides a chance to practice the M1L and M1R stitches and the mattress stitch. You knit it flat, and then use the mattress stitch to sew the sides together.

You’ll need the following supplies:

  • A small amount (less than 1 ounce) of worsted weight (medium) yarn; I used Vanna’s Choice,
  • US size 3 and 5 needles; DPNS, circulars, or straight needles should all work,
  • Crochet hook (size G or something similar),
  • Darning needle, and
  • Scissors.

Start by downloading or printing the Mitten Ornament pattern, and then review each of the following:
