As many of you have requested, today we are going to learn the easiest Newborn Baby Mittens knitting pattern ever! The only techniques required are: Cast on (use any method you like), knit and purl.
The mittens are knitted flat, so if you don’t know yet how to knit in the round, this project is for you.
And if you want to complete the set, you can also add the Baby Blanket for Beginners 😉
Let’s get started…
10 -12 gr of wool Super Fine, Sock, (or number 1). This is the one I used: Soft, great quality…a lovely yarn.
1 x Tapestry needle This set is very useful: from sock yarn weight up to bulky yarn, you can sew up every project you knit!).
With the smaller needles, 30 stitches and 46 rows knitted in Garter stitch = 10 cm / 4 in.
Total length 8.3 cm – 3.27 in
Wide: 5.8 cm – 2.28 in
Cuff length: 3 cm – 1.18 in
k2tog: Knit two stitches together
ssk: slip one stitch knitwise, slip the next, put them both back onto the left hand needle, knit them together.
RS: Right side of the work
WS: Wrong side of the work
BO: Bind off

Cut the yarn leaving a 10 cm – 4 in tail, thread your tapestry needle and join the top. Then, join the sides (watch the video if you want to see how it’s done).
Now, you just need to knit the second one and that’s it! (Both mittens are the same).
I hope you enjoy this pattern…it’s time to watch the video:
