These mittens are the newborn no scratch mittens, with my niece or nephew on the way I wanted to make a matching set consisting of a hat, booties, mittens, a blanket and a bunny or kitty. So I already have a bunny and kitty pattern which I might sell but they are my favorite patterns and turned out so nice I can’t just post them for free.
So back to the patterns I already posted the hat pattern and the booties, I made the treasured heirloom blanket that I link in one of my previous posts and mine didn’t turn out square, so I’m trying again unless someone has a pattern that’s diagonal blanket. So the mittens were so hard to find, no one seemed to have any that I liked so I made my own, it’s simple and I don’t think it’s like anyone else’s but I don’t know.
Items needed: Lightweight 3 yarn (baby yarn)
Double Pointed Needles US 5 and 7

Thread yarn through last 4 needles and pull tight, weave in the ends.

Hopefully you’ll think this is cute, for smaller hands don’t change the needles, for bigger hands go a size up for both sizes. If you have any questions or need help let me know and I’ll try to help you. Happy knitting!
