Today I am posting the “recipe” for my newborn to infant baby mittens. They are so cute and precious.
These are lovely gifts for a baby shower. You can also make a half dozen or so to match each of your baby outfits when you are pregnant. I purposely make these in worsted weight yarn because then when you make most other baby patterns you can crochet a pair of these out of the scraps of your yarn.
If you have any questions please let me know!
Size 4, Worsted Weight Yarn.
