Hand knit thumbless wool blend baby mittens on a coat string.
Baby's wool/nylon blend thumbless winter mittens with a coat cord are hand knit in smooth stockinette stitch with seamless construction. Left and right mitts are interchangeable. Ribbed cuffs gently hug the wrist.
The no-thumb mittens are joined with a 32" (81.28 cm) long coat string to prevent them from being lost. Simply slip each mitten through a jacket sleeve and secure the cord with a safety pin to the inside back neck of the jacket to secure the cord in place.
These traditionally crafted mittens are knit by hand in-the-round (not cranked on a machine!) with superfine weight yarn on US size 1 (2.25 mm diameter) double-pointed needles to obtain a gauge of 9 stitches x 12 rows per inch â that's 108 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.
