Easy Knit Baby Mittens


This is a great little pattern when you need to make a baby gift FAST!
The Baby Mitts can be made in no time at all. This is an awesome go-to gift item when you need something sweet and handmade but don’t have lots of time to get it done.

BO. Cut yarn, leaving a long length of yarn for sewing side seam
Note: The mittens can be made larger by increasing the number of stitches by increments of 4 stitches and then adding length as needed.

I always had these little thumbless mitts on my daughter when she was tiny but my version always had a string to attach them. I would run the string through the sleeves of her sweater or jacket. Nowadays I am not sure if this is considered safe so I didn’t add a string to the pattern. Mittens on a string sure are cute though!


Have fun with your tiny Baby Mitts!

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I'm a beginner with lots of yarn and four kids who have a lot of scarves and hats because that's all I can make, but I think I can do these! I will post again after I try and let you know.
