I have been working on a bedspread but I need a break! Tiny mittens for the tree next Christmas is just the thing. I have made small ones, but none as tiny as these. One poster said she would move the thumb up a row or two, so I will keep that in mind.

cute better than crochet that i can't do

I'm not a knitter, but if I were I would make these! I love mitten ornies, too cute ;)

WOW!!! A wonderful DPN pattern...they are so hard to find. Thank you thank you! Please do more!!!! Christmas is only eight months away

I plan to move the thumb up a row or two when I make another one.
