Thumbless hand knit baby mittens with a coat cord.
These baby's lightweight thumbless mittens are made with a wool/nylon blend yarn imported from Romania. They are knit in smooth stockinette stitch with seamless construction. The no-thumb design easily slips onto small hands. Left and right mitts are interchangeable. Ribbed cuffs gently hug the wrist.
These traditionally knit mittens are knit by hand in-the-round with superfine weight yarn on US size 1 double-pointed needles (not cranked on a machine) to obtain a gauge (in stockinette stitch) of 117 stitches per square inch! This fine, tight gauge creates a warm, durable fabric.
The no-thumb mittens are joined with a French knit tubular coat cord to prevent them from being lost. Simply slip each mitten through a jacket sleeve and secure the cord with the safety pin (included) to the inside back neck of the jacket to secure the cord in place.
Sized for baby, 3 to 9 months (approximately 10 to 22 lbs)
