I made up this little pattern for my 3 year old grandson. His hands are about the same size as sister's but a bit bigger around. (future football player:) ) They were quick and fun to make. I used a couple of twisted stitch patterns from "the book". I put some 'rooster steps' on the thumb gusset, just because I could. :lol:

Very nice! These look so warm, and I love the zig-zag design.

Those are adorable and a perfect companion to the big sis mitts. Beautiful work!
One question: what are rooster steps?

what are rooster steps? I'm sorry, I should not have been so cryptic. Rooster Steps is the name of one of the twisted stitch patterns in Twisted-Stitch Knitting.

I love that reason.

He is such a good sport and willing to do them over if he doesn't satisfy me the first time. This particular set of pictures was weird because the light made everything turn blue, mitts and snow. So DH took the pic I wanted and photo-shopped it so that it was as true to color as he could get it.
