NEED mitten pattern for 11 mos baby
Hi all,

I've been searching the internet high and low for a mitten pattern to make for my niece who is 11 mos. Potentially I'd like to make her something that would grow with her this year so probably a 1-2year old pattern that I can do in the round.

I found one promising pattern but it was knit on two needles. Worse come to worse I can convert it, but I'd rather try a pattern that someone else has done.

I was hoping to make the knittens by thanksgiving so I really need your help!

Thanks in advance!
ps. I've included her pic for inspiration!

She's adorable. How about just some knitted tubes and attach icord or single crochet strings to them-- to go in her coat sleeves? I can't even imagine how hard it would be to put her little thumbs in the thumb places on a pair of mittens! :D

AND, I doubt that they'd actually end up being in the little thumb holes anyway?

Measure her wrist, width of hand around, length of hand open.. and add a little to it.. add a ribbed cuff .. do a little lincreasing for the width of her hand part.. ??

THIS is what I made for a baby born last DEC.. and I didn't get to take any measurements- I just guessed and they worked fine.. of course, he's now too big to wear them this year.
