These are simple mittlets without thumbs or thumb openings. The figures are made with four-color stranded knitting but you can use only two (orange and green) and embroider white and black details afterwards. The widest circumference of the mittlet is 18 cm. The figure part is 7.5 cm and ribbing is 8 cm.

I used Regia Color 4-ply (yardage 210 m/50 g). My gauge was 30 stitches and 33 rows/10 cm in the stranded section. I used size 2.5 double point needles. The mittlets took about 24 g of yarn: 20 g green and altogether 4 g of other colors. You can adjust size by changing needle size and/or yarn weight.
