With three sizes to choose from, these Little Baby Mittens are to keep fingers warm and to prevent those fingers from scratching. Just follow this knitting pattern for baby mittens and you will have a present for winter babies. This pattern can be made with a cotton yarn too so the mittens can be worn in the spring.

Why Do Babies Wear Mittens?

Usually when you think of mittens, you think of a warm weather item that has a large spot for your fingers and a smaller spot for your thumb. For babies, however, mittens are for their protection. Newborns actually have super sharp nails that are difficult to cut, so they often wear mittens to protect themselves. Infants don't have a lot of control over their arm movements and can really harm themselves with their nails. 

These baby mittens serve an important purpose while being adorable. A set of these in multiple colors would be a sweet gift for someone that is expecting. A few could be made with cotton yarn so they would be cool in the spring and summertime and others with a wool yarn for the cooler fall and winter months. A variety of sizes would be nice, too, so that they can continue to wear them as they grow!

Awwww... these are adorable and quite utilitarian with your babies. If you are knitting for an up and coming shower, do several of these, small and larger size, for sure. Pick yarns to fit the season. These are more for protection than warmth, but a little protection from the cold in the winter is also necessary. I read through the pattern, it is very easy and straight forward. The designer has done a great job of writing for both UK and US knitters. You won't have to worry about googling a conversion. Other than maybe adding stripes as other have, I wouldn't change a thing about this pattern. They should work up very fast.

SOS from my daughter in law for mittens for my 4 month old grandson. This pattern is perfect. Easy to knit and i have adapted it to add stripes etc. Very happy and warm grandson Jack.
