Fingerless mitts are a great idea for active little ones who need fingers free to explore outdoors or to keep busy in the car with back seat play activities. 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.
