Pattern Notes
A tighter than normal gauge has been used for these mittens, to give a denser, more durable fabric. Although hand and thumb lengths are given, it is well worth checking as children’s hands do vary in size. The thumb gussets are set up differently on the left- and right-handed mittens – ensure you work one of each.
