Mama & Me Mittens

Sometimes the simplest things can be beautiful.
 
What could be more perfect than a little hand holding yours as you walk down the street?
 
Especially in matching mittens.
 
Moments like these should be treasured forever.

    1. Thanks Linda - glad you like them - I think the adult lady size is perfect for teens too. And glad to know the print friendly button is working well for you. Very best wishes. M

  2. What a cute idea !! May I ask what size needles you are using ?

  3. Marianna,

    Are these lovely mittens used with straight or circular needles? ( It was not mentioned in the pattern )

  4. Perfect! Just what I need. WHAT SIZE/TYPE NEEDLES are you using?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I am trying to use size 4.50mm - 16 inch circular needles for the cuff BUT not sure if this will work perfectly using these needles.

    I still think these adult mittens are used with straight ones instead - Still not sure?

    I have never made Mittens easy like this without knowing first really what to use straight or circular needles in the instructions in the pattern it is not mentioned.
