Fingerless Mitts for One Year Old
I was wearing a pair of fingerless mitts to a staff meeting when someone asked me if I made them, of course I said Yes! They asked if I could make some for a one year old because all they ones they find at stores have covered fingers or too big. So off I went to see if I could make a ‘small’ pair of fingerless mitts.
This is what I came up with:
Here is the recipient wearing them...she does not quite know what to think of them, but hey, at least the mitts match her pacifier :)
Supplies, approx. 55-60 yards worsted/bulky yarn. I used Biscotte Cie Griffon yarn in the Bouquet colorway.
US 8 DPN’s, I used the new Addi CraZyTrios.
Gauge = 5 stitches per inch
k – knit
p – purl
m1l: (make one left) lift strand between the needles from the front on the left needle, knit into the back of the loop
m1r: (make one right) lift strand between the needles from the back on the left needle, knit into the front of the loop
Backward yo: make a yarn over the right needle with your yarn coming from the back to the front.
Cast on 24 stitches, join in round being careful not to twist stitches.
Row 1: *k2, p2*, repeat till end of round
Rows 2-5 : repeat row 1
Rows 6 – 13: knit all stitches
Row 14: k2, m1l, k1, m1r, k to end of round
Row 15: knit all stitches
Row 16: k2, m1l, k3, m1r, k to end of round
Row 17: knit all stitches
Row 18: k1, slip next 7 stitches onto waste yarn, cast on 3 stitches with backward loop (I try to do these 3 stitches a little tight), k to end of round
Row 19 – 23: knit all stitches
Rows 24 – 28: repeat row 1
Bind of loosely: * k1, backward yo, k1, slip yo and first stitch over the last stitch, p1, slip first stitch over second, p1, slip first stich over second * repeat * * till two purl stitches remain, p1, slip first stitch over second, p1, slip first stich over second, pull yarn through stitch to fasten off and weave in ends.
Pick up the 7 thumb stitches onto DPN’s, attach yarn and pick up and knit 3 stiches from the cast on edge. You should now have 10 stitches on your needles.
Row 1: *k1, p1*. Repeat till end of round
Row 2: repeat row 1
Bind of regularly, fasten off and weave in ends.
I hope this is clear…..please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
