Itty Bitty Kiddie Mittens

So how do you keep the 2 year old's hands warm - fingerless gloves of course.  What else??   Just when I thought I'd done enough for the girls who work with my daughter, one of them asked if I could make some for her toddler. Its been a long time since I've held the hand of a 2 yo so it had to be a bit of a guess as to the size but I think these should fit.
Want the pattern?  Its one of those Clayton's ones - you know, the pattern you have when you don't really have a pattern.  All I did was ........
8ply soft yarn, 4.50mm hook.  Chain 23, work hdc in second chain from hook and to end of row, ch2 and turn. Now, working in the back loops only, continue with rows of hdc for about 4.5 inches (work through both loops for last stitch on each row).  Sew seam, leaving a gap of 3ch for thumb. Turn up cuff, voila !!

  2. Hi Dorothy, I'm back from DC and able to read my fave blogs, like yours, and actually leave comments! I think I spend a jillion hours on the commenting.. but I think if you want them, you have to put the effort in leaving them. :-) Love all your gloves, I scrolled down to catch up. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
