As an ongoing project throughout the year, I knitted all 12 mini mittens in Kathy Lewinski’s 12 Days of Christmas Mitten Garland as a gift for an unsuspecting friend. The mittens are quite addictive and I found them hard to put down for other obligations. I’m planning to attach the mittens to a long I-cord to form a garland. However, if I don’t get to it, they’ll be adorable as separate ornaments.
You can purchase the pattern for all 12 designs in the 12 Days of Christmas Mitten Garland on Ravelry for $5.00, which includes the written pattern and 26 charts (a mirrored version and numbered version for each of the twelve days, plus an alternative picture for day seven). You can also download the patterns separately for free, though I think the $5 price is a steal for all the clever charts!
The mittens are worked with fingering weight yarn on size U.S. 1 (2.25 mm) double-pointed needles. Each mitten measures about 4.5” tall and 2.25” wide (not including thumb). I purchased one 400 yd skein each of three colors for the mittens shown here and I’m fairly certain that there’s enough yarn left to knit another set. That one will be for ME!

I’m so thrilled you made these and enjoyed them!
Thank you for sharing this. These are truly sweet designs for the 12 days. I did an Advent mini’sock’ chain for my DIL one Christmas. I used up small scraps from various socks and then had a red sock with an angora ‘edge’ for the 25th day. It was a lot of fun. This would be more work, but so clever.
Oh, goodness, those are adorable!
Those are lovely!
