These bulky baby/child mittens knit up in a flash to keep little hands and fingers toasty. Lengthen the ribbing at the cuff a few inches and they’ll do double duty as armwarmers.
Mittens are thumbless in Baby size and include a thumb in Toddler and Child sizes. Pattern includes both written out and charted directions for the cables.
