I designed these mittens because I needed some for my little girls. I couldn’t find a child-sized pattern that included the design elements I like in adult mittens, so I developed my own pattern that combines those design elements with children’s sizing.

This pattern assumes basic knowledge of working in the round, but it is compatible with any style of your choice: DPNs, circulars, or magic loop. This pattern also uses increases, decreases, and rib cast-on, but links to tutorials are included.

The mittens are ambidextrous. They are sized with close-fitting cuffs and roomier hands (just right for playing in the snow). I also include information for devising additional sizes.

This pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.
