Toddler’s Mittens

Happy Valentine’s Day! We had a snowstorm today so I took advantage of being stuck inside and spent the day making toddler sized mittens. The Children’s Mittens I had made earlier were too big, so I found a pattern for smaller ones. This new pattern was still too big though, so I adjusted it to make really tiny mittens. Here is the original pattern. (No longer available however you can still view the creator and the mittens.) My version can be found below. img_20170214_185239034

  1. I am trying to knit these mittens for my 1 year old granddaughter for Christmas, but the original pattern is no longer available. Would it be possible for you to email me the directions for the decrease rows and the thumb? I would very much appreciate it as it’s hard to find patterns small enough for the littles. Thanks!
