Pattern Description:

I love making Christmas ornaments for my family and friends! One size fits all! And, these mittens knit up quick! Make lots of these little mittens and add a felt applique design to make them extra special.

These mittens are the perfect size to use as a gift card holder or to tuck a little cash gift inside.

This is a great time to splurge on a nice skein of yarn because these little mittens only use about 25 yards of yarn.

If you know how to knit and purl, and do some simple embroidery stitches, you can make this keepsake ornament. Detailed photo instructions are provided for M1 stitch...how to increase stitches to make the thumb of the mitten. Also, there are detailed instructions on how to do embroidery stitches.

If you are a beginning knitter who has had success and is ready for a little bit of a challenge this would be a good pattern to try because you won't invest a lot in yarn or time.
