This adorable pattern is a great introduction to colorwork. Stripes, embroidery, and cleverly placed buttons provide limitless opportunities to delight any child. There are three different mittens (some with buttons, some without), and two versions of each mitten. This is an excellent way to use up scraps of Baby Cashmerino, or indulge the little button collector in your life :)
You will need no more than one ball each of #340032 sky (MC) and #340100 white (CC) for the Picnic Blanket mitten, for all sizes.
