Fire Pit Mitts

Fire Pit Mitts


A cozy and simple staple accessory for chilly days and evenings spent ‘round the fire. This pattern has instructions for an elbow-length tapered mitt as well as a short, mid-forearm mitt, all in three size options. Perfect when knit up in Oh Merino worsted! One skein is all you need for a cozy pair of mitts.

Pattern by Tayler Earl


Yarn Needs: About 210 yards; worsted weight  

Suggested Yarn:  1 skein Fiber for the People™ yarn in Merino Worsted 218 yards, 100 grams (shown in English Toffee {burnt orange}) 

Gauge: 20 sts and 27 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch 

Needles: US 7 DPNS* (or long circular for Magic Loop) or size needed to obtain gauge.  

Notions:  stitch markers, stitch holder or waste yarn, and darning needle for weaving in ends.   

Sizing:  Small(Medium, Large)

To fit palm width: 2 ¾ in.(3 ¼ in., 4 in.)

* If you tend to leave ladders when using DPNs (like me) they will be noticeable in this knit.  Be sure to pull tightly on the second stitch on each needle or try the Magic Loop.


This is a two-in-one pattern.  You have the pattern for the long, tapered mitts in three sizes, as well as a pattern for the shorter, non-tapered version in three sizes. 

Be sure to bind-off all sections purl-wise to make a clean edge that matches the cast-on edge.  This isn’t crucial, as the edges will naturally curl, but for those of us who prefer matching cast-on and bind-off edges, this helps.
