River Mitts Quick Knit-Along with Katie Rempe!

River Mitts Quick Knit-Along with Katie Rempe!

Raise your hand (or comment below) if you’ve ever tried making mittens but got hung up at the thumb gusset. 🙋‍♀️

If that's you – or even if you're a mitten-knittin' pro – I'm sooo excited to show you this innovative wrist warmer design by my friend Katie!

River Mitts fingerless gloves by Katie Rempe

River Mitts look like two mittens but they're just one, seamless wristlet that keeps your fingers toasty warm.

I love how the main color sits out over the thumb and yet the palm peeks from the inside with a second or third color.

What yarn do I use to knit the River Mitts?

Designed with Ewe Ewe's Fluffy Fingering merino yarn, these mitts are soft and washable! And, of course, colorful 🌈

I think I'm going to make the Black Licorice, Citrus Pop and Cotton Candy combo during the KAL.

Choose 2 or 3 of your favorite colors to make the River Mitts your own.

I put together some pretty 2-skein and 3-skein color combo yarn kits that include the River Mitts PDF knitting pattern, too.

Can I choose my own yarn colors?

YES! If you'd like to choose your own colors of Fluffy Fingering yarn that's great! I can't wait to see what you pick.

Received my yarns which are great! I am nervous and excited. I also did not receive the pattern with my yarn, but I went ahead to purchase the pattern separately since Saturday is coming.

Hi Heather,
Just received my River Mitts yarn – thank you! There was no pattern included, however.

Do you use double pointed needles for the river mittens
