Sprout plays outside almost every day. The weather will soon turn cold, and she will need these so she can continue to spend time outdoors.

I would say these took me about 4 hours to knit. A rewarding little project that made for a nice break in Christmas stocking knitting.
Basic Mitten Pattern by Ann Budd
The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns
Size – 2-4 years
This pattern book was a birthday gift from my mom. And I love it! It gives patterns for various basic items (hat, mittens, sweater, etc.) by gauge. Amazing. These mittens were my first project from the book, and I enjoyed working with this book. It was tricky in some places, learning to interpret the way the instructions are given.
The only mistake I made was not making the thumb long enough. But they do fit well enough, at least for this winter. ☺️
