Thumbless hand knit baby mittens with a coat cord.
These striped lightweight wool blend thumbless mittens for baby are hand knit in smooth stockinette stitch in random width stripes of solid pink, dark red, bright orange, burgundy, dark gray, and cocoa brown. Colors are suitable for a boy or girl. Left and right mitts are interchangeable. The no-thumb design allows mittens to easily slip onto tiny hands. Ribbed cuffs gently hug the wrist.
The mini no-thumb mitts are joined with a knitted tubular coat string keeper to help prevent them from being lost. The knitted tubular cord is thicker and stronger than the simple crocheted chain that is typically seen. To use the coat cord, simply slip each mitten through a jacket sleeve and secure the center of the cord with the provided safety pin to the inside back neck of the jacket to hold it in place.
These traditionally knit mittens are made by hand in-the-round for seamless construction. Made with Italian super fine weight yarn with five US size 1 double-pointed needles (not cranked on a machine!) to obtain a gauge of 8 stitches x 12 rows per inch â that's 96 stitches per square inch! This tight gauge creates a fabric that is warm and durable.
Sized for baby -- approximately 6 to 9 months (15 to 22 lbs) with 3.125" (7.93 cm) hand measurement (measuring from wrist crease to tip of longest finger).

Hand length (measured from top of cuff to tip): 3" (7.62 cm)
