Baby Mittens

Easiest, quickest project ever. I made up this pattern as I went along, using seed stitch for warmth. Of course, you can use any stitch pattern or just simply stockinette.

Seed-Stitch Baby Mittens

Materials:
Four size 3 double pointed needles
25 grams worsted Lose Weight Exercise yarn; I used Rowan’s Cashsoft Aran yarn (a wool, microfiber, and cashmere blend)

What to do:
Cast on 24 stitches and divide over 3 needles.
Rows 1-8: knit 2, purl 2
Row 9: work 11 stitches in seed stitch pattern (knit 1, purl 1), increase 1, pattern 2 sts, increase 1, pattern 11 stitches
Rows 10-32: work in seed stitch pattern
Row 33: knit 1, *decrease 1, pattern 3*, repeat between * to the end of the row.
Row 34: purl 1, *decrease 1, pattern 3*, repeat between * to the end of the row.
Row 35: knit 1, *decrease 1, pattern 2*, repeat between * to the end of the row.
Row 36: purl 1, decrease 1, *pattern 1, decrease 1*, repeat between * to the end of the row.
Row 37: knit 1, decrease 1, *pattern 1, decrease 1*, repeat between * to the end of the row.
Cut yarn leaving a 6-inch tail to loop through the remaining 6 stitches. Pull tight to cinch shut and weave remaining yarn into the inside of the mitten to secure.

VoilĂ !
