Knitted jumbo mitten pattern for a alternative christmas sock : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

i am looking for a pattern to knit a large( about18" by 18") mitten that can be used for a christmas sock. I have made them for my children and now want to make for grandchildren and we can't find the pattern. Please help. thanks

I've never seen a pattern for one that large, but you could easily adapt a baby hat pattern (most of those are 18-19" around) so you know how many stitches to start with and then you just have to decide what kind of yarn to use and what type of thumb to make.

Also you could adapt a Christmas sock pattern for size (and a better indicator of how much yarn you'll need). You mean the grandchildren aren't yet wise to the fact that a sock will hold more goodies? LOL

Mary Maxim has a pattern in their catalog. You can check their website also.
