Mitts in five children's sizes (XXS/XS/S/M/L, to fit ages 2 to 14 years) have a snug fit with deep ribbed cuff, shaped thumb gusset, and extra hand coverage for warmth. Add a patterned panel if desired (several choices included). A great stocking stuffer project which travels well and knits up in a flash.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
