Baby Mitten Pattern

So my first make of 2018 is off the needles.  With the sudden drop in temperature outside, my baby boy needed some mittens. So I dug out a partly used ball of Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, some DPNs and cast on.  I made up the pattern as I went along.  Fortunately I cast on the correct number of stitches to fit him!

The great thing about these is that they were so quick to do.  Here’s the pattern:

  • Using DK yarn and 3.5mm DPNs, cast on 32 stitches.
  • 10 rounds of 1×1 rib.
  • Switch to 4mm DPNs.
  • Knit 20 rounds.
  • Fingertip shaping:
    • K2tog tbl, K12, K2tog, K2tog tbl, K12, K2tog
    • Knit 1 round
    • K2tog tbl, K10, K2tog, K2tog tbl, K10, K2tog
    • Knit 1 round
    • K2tog tbl, K8, K2tog, K2tog tbl, K8, K2tog
    • Knit 1 round
  • Use Kitchener stitch to graft the remaining 20 stitches to close up the mitten.

I estimate this would be 6-12 month size.
