Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man. Bake me a cake as fast as you can...... We all know the classic childhood rhyme. These mittens are knit at a tighter than normal gauge to make a cozy fabric that keeps out chills, ensuring that your little one's pat-a-cake makers are ever ready for rhymes and giggles. Embellished with flowers at the cuffs, have fun playing with different color combinations. These of course can be left off for mittens that would suit a boy. You could still play with colors by trying different stripe patterns, or adding different embellishments (now would be a good time to pull out that book of 200 Knitted Embellishments sitting on your shelf). Mittens are worked in the round on double pointed needles, so there's no seaming required. Includes instructions for three sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. I'm not normally a big fan of acrylic yarn, but Red Heart's Luster Sheen proved to be an exception to that rule. It has a great silky smooth hand, doesn't pill, comes in vibrant colors and is machine washable, which is a definite plus when it comes to baby items. It's labeled as a sport weight, but I personally think it knits up more like a fingering weight - something to consider if you're substituting yarn. Yarns with a recommended gauge in the range of 27 to 29 sts = 4" would work well. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round Increasing Decreasing GAUGE 31 stitches & 42 rounds = 4" in stockinette stitch worked in the round on size 3 needles. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Includes instructions for three sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months.

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
