New Videos: Owl Cable Mitts


Being a designer, it’s really rare for me to use a pattern written by someone else. In fact, it’s only happened twice in the last 10 years, I believe. You see, last year, I saw these mitts. I believe I was busy writing a book at the time too. I dropped EVERYTHING when I saw these and immediately made them for my daughter. With it being the gifting season, I’m sure you’re going to love this quick-to-stitch project just as much as I do.

This design is by Erika Ward and is called simply Owl Mitts. Here is my three-part video series for the first mitt. Although I think you’ll get it enough to be able to do the second mitt, I’ll be making videos for the second mitt next weekend, hopefully. But, really, don’t wait for me. Just download the free pattern here and I’m sure you’ll be fine. :-)

I’ve embedded three videos below. If you’re unable to view them here, please check my YouTube channel here. Likewise, you can also find the left-handed versions on YouTube as well. Enjoy!


  1. I just wanted to say I absolutely LOVE that you provide a left-handed video tutorial as well as a right-handed one. It’s so helpful not to have to reverse what I’m seeing! Thank you! I’m definitely going to have to make these now!

  2. Were can get instructions for left hand mitt ?? The tutorial for right hand was lovely thank you xx

    • I’m sorry. I never did the second video. I received horrible emails about this first video and haven’t had the heart to make further videos since then. As much as I like to help people, I don’t like setting myself up for abuse like that. I’m not sure whether I will add more videos, but, if I do, I will add this one to the list.

      • That’s such a shame that some horrible people ruined it for you! When my grandmother taught me to crochet, she didn’t know what stitches were called or how to read a pattern, so this video was immensely helpful to me. You do such a good job of explaining and showing what everything means!

  3. Thanks so much for the videos – very helpful :)

  4. These three videos are so amazing. I have seen the owl fingerless glove pattern but this by far Is going to make my life easier and less stressful. Kim, I love your designs, and your tutorial her was so relaxing. You are so soft spoken and I really believe that is what made it. And I learned a few things from you as well! :) I will not be intimidated so much when I go to make this up! Thank you so much. You are simply amazing!

  5. Thank you so much for the video it was very helpful!!! Continue on with the videos they are great!! My friend loves owls so I’m making these for her for Christmas! :)
