Toddler's hand knit fingerless mittens.
Toddler fingerless gloves are very popular with children. Little hands stay warm but they can still play and snack without having to take them off. Unlike regular mittens, the kids tend to keep these on because they retain free movement of their fingers to grasp toys. Thumb suckers will enjoy the exposed thumb too!
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 (in stockinette stitch) of over 88 stitches per square inch! This fine, tight gauge creates a warm, durable fabric.
Sized for toddler -- approximately 12 to 18 months
Actual mitten measurements:
Hand length: 2.75" (6.99 cm) -- from top of cuff to edge of ribbed knuckle opening

Because these mittens are knit from self-patterning yarn, no two pairs will ever be exactly the same. They are one-of-a-kind.
