These mittens are made in the round on double pointed needles, so no pesky seams to sew up! I use a regular 4 ply acrylic or wool blend yarn that is easy to care for and wears well. I like using variegated yarns, but you can make striped mittens by working 2 rows of each of 2 or more colors. You will need approximately 3 oz. of yarn to make a pair.
This pattern is for kids sizes small - 2 to 4 years; medium - 5 to 7 years (in parenthesis); large - 8 to 10 years [in brackets] - 3 distinct sizes are presented in one pattern.
This pattern has been passed on to me from several generations of knitters. I hope you enjoy these wonderful mittens!
