Don’t Starve knitting pattern for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Don't Starve mitten pattern

Don’t Starve is a crafting and gathering survival game that first hit the scene a few years ago. In December 2015, the Shipwrecked DLC (downloadable content) launched, and I became addicted. Way back when Facebook games flooded your feed, I was a Farmville addict (I know, the SHAME).  (More after the jump)

Don’t Starve is a great game for vegging out with a cup of coffee – and in fact, I wrote about the music of the game over on Classical Diary. (Click here to read more about that.)

In the game, your health is indicated by a heart symbol. A full heart for full health, obviously, and an empty, broken heart when you’re approaching death’s door.

So with my recent death by Pengull firmly in mind, I decided to design some super simple mitts to show my love of the game. These mitts are knit flat using the intarsia method of colorwork, and seamed up with the mattress stitch, leaving a hole for the thumb. They are a great pattern for knitting beginners!

The pattern includes row by row instructions, and three colorwork charts: left hand full heart, right hand broken heart, and also a bonus right hand full heart for those that want heart-themed mitts without the Don’t Starve reference.

Oh, did I mention that the pattern is only £1? That’s right, £1 – for a limited time.

You can whip up these mitts in an evening without a problem, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned knitter. Make them for the Don’t Starve fan in your life, or make them for yourself – or use the bonus heart chart to make some Valentine’s Day themed mitts for someone who has never seen a PlayStation. It’s your call!

  1. *Love* Don't starve, and I often knit during the nights when I don't have any cooking or crafting to do at camp. These gloves would be perfect to knit while playing!

  3. Don't Starve is by FAR my fave crafting/exploring based game. I love building up hoards of Rock Lobsters as bodyguards, and the ability to switch worlds is a lot of fun. I'm glad you like the pattern! <3
