the size - 0-3 months
the guage - 7 stitches and 10 rows = 1 inch
set of 4 size 2 double pointed needles
size D crochet hook
2 balls of worsted weight yarn in contrasting colors
(I used some leftover Patons Classic Merino Wool in Rich Red and Royal Purple)
Mitten (make 2):
You can use any color pattern you like. For the purple/red mittens I alternated 3 rows of red and 6 rows or purple.
Cast on 30 stitches, distribute the stitches equally across 3 of the dpns
Round 1: Place stitch marker, join stitches, being careful not to twist. Begin a 1x1 rib (*k1, p1, repeat from * to marker).
Round 2-9: Continue 1x1 rib.
Round 10: k all stitches.
Round 11: *k1, m1, k8, repeat from * (33 sts)

Round 14: *k1, m1, k9, repeat from * (36 sts)
Round 15-16: k

I love the pattern - I was searching for baby mittens with worsted weight yarn knitted in the round to match a hat, and this was perfect!
I just wondered if there is a mistake in the pattern though, I think it should be:
Round 11: k1, m1, k9, repeat from * (33 sts)
Round 14: k1, m1, k10, repeat from * (36 sts)
Round 17: k1, m1, k11, repeat from * (39 sts)
Round 24: k1, m1, k12, repeat from * (42 sts)
Otherwise the finished mittens are lovely.
Best regards, Helen
