Wish I could help ya'. My grandmother used to knit me mittens every year, until her arthritis got too bad. My boys still use the hat and scarf she made me, must be 20 years ago now... Good luck on your search!

I'll ask my mom if she has one as well as another knitting friend. I think I have seen something like that but I don't knit myself. In Newfoundland they created these awesome mitts and gloves with a technique called thrum knitting. These are incredible!

Patty, instead of using 2 or 3 strands of worsted, why not find a bulky or super bulky yarn to use instead? I guess what I'm getting at is, is there a specific reason that you want to use worsted? You can try Freepatterns.com. They've got a TON of patterns there. I'll look around here this afternoon and see if I can find one for ya. Best of luck!

Misha, Patti might want to use 2-3 strands of knitting worsted b/c that might be what she spins/plies...it's pretty much what I do.
I will check out the website. In the meantime, if someone wants to post some patterns, I'd sure appreciate it!

I want to use 2-3 strands because I'm lazy .I had a pattern to make them and it was warm and knitted up fast .I do have one for kids but was hoping not to fuss with it .

I can't help you on finding a pattern but I thought I would mention the best pair of mittens I ever had were ones that had a loose knitting on the outside and then a tighter knitting on the inside. It was like having two mittens and the wrist part brought both layers together. They were so warm that I took them to a knitter I knew and had her make several more for me. Now that I live in Virginia, I don't need mittens at all so I don't have them anymore. But for warmth, they were the best.

Hi! There are several websites for free patterns (both knitted and crocheted) for hats, mittens, scarves, sox, etc. One sight is www.angelfire.com--they give patterns for u to do stuff to help the homeless and shelters and family. A 2-needle knit mitten pattern for kids can be found on: www.the family.com--they also have patterns and then there is the www.top100sites.f2s.com for knit and crochet patterns (a site for the top 100 sites for crafters of all kinds, esp. knit and crochet). Good luck! Traci
