Hand knit wool blend thumbless newborn baby mittens without a coat string.
Baby's lightweight wool and nylon blend thumbless mittens are knit in smooth stockinette stitch with seamless construction. Thumbless design easily slips on small hands. Left and right mitts are interchangeable. 1.25" (3.175 cm) deep 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 of 9 stitches x 12 rows per inch -- that's 108 stitches per square inch! This fine, tight gauge creates a warm, durable fabric.
Sized for newborn to 3 months (approximately 6 to 14 lbs)
