My grandson was sqeezing into some old fleece gloves, so I whipped him up some mittens. I modified the pattern from www.helloyarn.com
to make them smaller with a more traditional top.

I actually knit 3 of them, since my first pass produced 2 left ones.

I ripped the extra down to the cuff to place the thumb on the other side. If he loses one, he'll be wearing one knitted mitten and one old fleece glove!
