Baby Mitts

Sorry it has been so long since my last post! I have been uber busy job hunting. With Christmas coming we sure could use the extra money. I have my first interview tomorrow and I am so excited. But back to the Mittens.
My bff over at Traveling Thrifter was telling me about some mitts she was crocheting for her husband. It inspired me to bust out the knitting needles and the pink yarn in back of my closet and make some mitts because I had never done them before.

I made thumbless mitts becasue they are for a baby and we all know how much of a pain it is getting there little thumbs in that hole, and they never stay anyways.

I came up with this pattern myself because well I HATE following a pattern!

I also made a matching cap and am working on a matching blanket.

The bows on the mitts are a bit long and I do plan to trim them hahaha.

Here is the pattern I came up with

*    * means repeat across

Cast on 32 sts. (Work in ribbing {Knit 1, Purl1} for 1.5 inches)

Then K1 *yo, K2tog*

For the next row you will continue in the stockinette stitch {Purl 1 entire row, K 1 entire row) until 3 inches from your ribbed row. End your last row in Purl

Decrese: K1, *K2tog to last stitch, K1
Continue with the above two rows until you have 15 sts on your needle. Cast off. Sew together.


  1. Oh I could use these! My little pumpkin doesn't have any mittens yet and the weather is getting cold! The pattern looks pretty simple, too! I can't believe you made it yourself...smart girl!

    I never figured out how to purl though...Maybe my mom could knit up a pair for me. :)

  2. So cute! I'm going to try this patten!
