PinchKnitter.com has a pattern for Newfoundland mittens. The mittens are made with two colors, usually a light and a dark, of worsted weight yarn and a set of four double pointed 4 millimeter needles.
The knitter needs a stitch holder or a large safety pin. Knitters can find many other free patterns at websites such as Ravelry.com and KnittingParadise.com.
