Mini Mitten Monday

An occasional series featuring miniature mittens knit for the 2008 Holiday Season


Throughout the year, I'd like to knit an average of 2 to 3 tiny mittens so that I have a giant stock-pile to use for tree decorations, package decorations, and possibly Christmas cards next year. I'll report in on my progress, maybe one every 4 to 6 weeks, just to keep myself honest. The mittens above, knit from leftovers from these mittens and these socks, show 2/3 of my progress to date, so I am already a little behind--three mittens in 3.5 weeks. Plus, the third mitten, made with Cherry Tree Hill red yarn, has gone missing, and only time will tell whether I'll ever find it. I guess that this is the risk you run when knitting 1 inch high mittens, but hopefully I will not lose a third of the mittens I knit. I've been using Pink Argyle's mini mitten ornament pattern, but I've seen a few other patterns that I might take for a spin, too. If you have a favorite tiny mitten pattern, please let me know!

Oh my god . . . I just commented to Shannon that I was totally making mini-mittens with my leftovers. Amazing how that thought process works in unison! I am sure that yours will be finished much earlier than mine, but I can't wait to get started.

So glad you posted a link since I was afraid that I would have to come up with something on my own.

I love this tiny mittens too. I've been using a free pattern at:
These are the mittens that were on the front of the webs catalogue this winter.
