Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
This is the final project using the leftovers from the Dream Catcher Baby Blanket Sweater yarn. The finale pattern is for the sweetest and easiest teeny-tiny baby mittens, the thumbless sort. Be sure to check out the blanket and hat that along with the mitts complete this super-duper baby set:
There will plenty of yarn leftover to also make the Jelly Bean Baby Socks if you’d like.
I made them mix and match. I love all sorts of items like socks and mittens that go together but aren’t exactly the same. You can make the pair matching or not. It’s up to you! Here is some information you might like to know about this pattern:
Size: 0-6 months
Note: The mittens can be made larger by increasing the number of stitches by increments of 4 stitches and then adding length as needed.
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), small amounts in Pollen #7508, Grass #7502, Splash #7510, Firefly #7505 and Watermelon #7512
Needles: US size 7 double-pointed needles set of 4 or the size needed to obtain the gauge
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch
I always had these little thumbless mitts on my babies when they were tiny but my version always had a string to attach them. I would run the string through the sleeves of their sweater or jacket. Nowadays I am not sure if this is considered safe so I didn’t add a string to the pattern. Mittens on a string sure are cute though.
The Baby Mitts can be made in no time at all. This is an awesome go-to gift item when you need something sweet and handmade but don’t have lots of time to get it done.
Sometimes I look at the string and sticks in front of me and I can’t believe all of the cool stuff that can be made from such simple materials. That’s what makes knitting so extraordinary. The sky is the limit.
Have fun with your tiny Baby Mitts, Knitters.
