Rosy baby mittens
The mittens' actual size is 6.5 cms wide at the widest point x 14 cms high (with the cuff folded back as shown above). This size will fit a baby age approx 9 - 18 months. I used Easyknits bamboo merino mix in shade choc-choc cherry, about a quarter of a skein, so I estimate you need about 100m of yarn. You also need a set of 3.25mm dpns, or size required to achieve correct gauge (tension) - which is 15 sts and 19 rows per 5 cms in stocking stitch.
I'm quite proud of having published a design, even if it is extremely simple!
