Delightfully whimsical mittens knit in the round without a thumb are sure to be a favorite among parents and babies alike. Easy to make and to use, these playful, cozy mittens are the perfect addition to any new wardrobe. Knit in the round with embroidered seeds and garter stitch leaves, these are also a useful stash buster. Bring some summer into the coldest days.

These mittens come in two sizes. A small infant/newborn size (with a diameter if 2 inches, hand length of 3 inches) and a medium 3-6 month size (with a diameter of 2.5 inches, hand length of 3.5 inches).

The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn and size 5 double pointed needles but could be knit with 2 strands of sport or DK weight held together. A heavier yarn could also result in a roomier mitten.

These are thumb-less because no one needs to waste time forcing baby thumbs into thumb holes.

These are a fast knit with a very fun result.
