American Girl Doll Winter Fun Mittens and Scarves

Difficulty level: ** Easy

Free Doll Mittens and Scarf Knitting Patterns

A pair of warm mittens and a scarf are essential winter-time accessories for the American Girl Doll. I describe two styles of mitten and two styles of scarf. With the right color choices, these can be made to match any cold-weather outfit for your doll. I knitted a set to match the AGD Nordic Winter Dress and Hat.

Mittens are worked in the round, seamless, top-down:

White Mittens

The lavender mittens are simpler to make, but they do not have a taper at the end of the fingers like the white ones and look a little more rustic. This may or may not be important to you.

Cast on 28, distribute them evenly on dpn, join and continue to work in rounds.
Work 1x1 rib for 10 rounds, continue in stockinette and work 10 more rounds.

Divide for palm and thumb:
Round 1: knit 4 sts and transfer them to a holder (1" safety pin), knit the next 4 sts and transfer them to another holder (1" safety pin), knit the remaining 20 sts, then close them in the round. Work 3 more rounds on 20 sts.

Round 5: k19, slip the last st in the round to the left needle, slip the first st of the next round to a spare needle, and hold the needle in front of work.

Transfer the first slipped st from the right to the left needle, k 2 sts together, return just knitted stitch to the left needle, pass the slipped st from the spare needle over the k2tog stitch. (psso)

Round 6: k7, psso, k7
Round 7: k 16
Round 8: k7, psso, k5, sl the last st in the round to a spare needle
Round 9: psso the last st of the previous round and the first 2 sts, k4, psso, k3, sl 1
Round 10: psso the last and the first 2 sts, k2, psso, k1, sl 1
Round 11: psso, psso, 2 sts remain, pass the last over the first and tie off.

Thumb

Work 5 rounds on 8 stitches.
Round 6: k2tog 4 times. Break yarn, leaving a 2-3" end. Thread the end through remaining sts and fasten securely. Weave in the ends.

With a piece of contrast yarn, embroider a circle on the front of the white mitts.



Lavender Mittens (simpler):

Cast on 28, distribute them evenly on dpn. Close into round.

Work 1x1 rib for 10 rounds, continue in stockinette and work 10 more rounds.

Divide for palm and thumb:

Palm: knit 4 sts and transfer to a holder (1" safety pin), knit the next 4 sts and transfer to another holder (1" safety pin), knit 20 sts in the round. Work 3 more rounds on 20 sts.

Round 5: k 19, knit the last stitch in the round and the first st of the next round together =19 sts
Round 6: k 9, k2tog, k 9 = 18 sts
Round 7: k 18
