Antler Mittens

October 30, 2015


One of my first patterns, the Antler Mittens, is still one of my favorite patterns today. It is a testament to the timeless fashion of a classic knitted item! I have been smitten with the Antler cable for a few years now, you may recognize it from the Antler sweater and the free Antler hat…okay, I’m a little obsessed. They are such great mittens, I wanted to make a pair for Hunter so there was only 1 thing to do: size them for all!


The Antler mittens now come in classic TCK sizing (baby to big) and the pattern got a bit of a make-over with new photos and some updated pattern writing too.

Pattern Details

Yarn: 70 (80, 120, 150, 200) yds aran / chunky weight yarn (shown in Madelinetosh Chunky in ‘fog’ and ‘robin red breast’)

Needles: US#6 / 4mm & US#8 / 5mm (or as required to meet gauge)
DPNs or long circulars for magic loop


These mittens are squishy and wonderful, perfect to keep the cold at bay as fall turns to winter. They feature a nice long cuff (my personal fave), great for keeping mittens on small hands and slipping up the sleeve of your coat. No gaps for the wind to get you!


If you are a gift knitter like me, you already know the season is upon us! I’ll be whipping up a pair or 2 of these, how about you?

    To me the antler mitts pattern is unclear as to how many rounds you work after the rib cuff, before you begin the gusset. Can you help?

      Hi Caroline – it depends on your size, but until the chart has been worked 1 or 2 times, then work one more round (round 1 of the chart)

    Gorgeous mitten pattern, I love the rich colours you used as well. So deep and warm. :)

    Will the new version of the pattern be available at no cost for those of us that have previously bought the Antler pattern?
