My sister loves turtles. I secretly call her turtle-guru (but don’t tell her). When she asked me to knit some baby stuff for her to give to a friend, I went a little crazy searching for cute turtle baby stuff. I love Sheldon, and I wanted a whole set to match it. Since I couldn’t find turtle (or honeycomb) mittens, at least baby sized, I came up with this pattern.
You only need very little yarn (great for leftovers) and they knit up in no time. Enjoy!

A note to size:
The pattern was written with a newborn to small baby in mind. Since I’m a little iffy on baby measurements and I don’t have one to try on the mittens, this is a guesstimate.
The easiest way to change size is to use a different weight of yarn and/or a different size of needles.
