The Mitsy Mittens make a special gift for a very lucky little one. Knit the pattern with finer yarn and smaller needles to make an adorable tiny ornament for your Christmas tree. Or, use the modifications suggested at the end of the pattern to make a super cozy adult sized version.

The pattern is specifically designed to be worked with a single circular needle using the magic loop circular knitting technique, but can easily be adapted for double pointed needles.
