These baby's Fair Isle-inspired striped lightweight wool blend thumbless mittens are hand knit in smooth stockinette stitch with seamless construction.

Left and right are interchangeable. Ribbed 1" (2.5 cm) cuffs gently hug the wrist. Fingertips are closed with kitchener stitch — a grafting technique that forms an invisible join and leaves no rough edges inside the mitten. These traditionally knit mittens are knit by hand in-the-round with superfine weight yarn on US size 1 double-pointed needles (not on a machine) to obtain a gauge of 8 stitches x 11 rows per inch that's 88 stitches per square inch!

The mittens are joined with a 34" (86.4 cm) long coat string to prevent them from being lost. This coat string was crafted using a knitting spool (also called a corker) to produce a narrow tube of fabric that is similar to an I-cord. It takes about an hour and a half just to knit this length of cord.

To use the cost string, simply slip each mitten through a jacket sleeve and secure the center of the cord to the inside back neck of the jacket with a safety pin to hold it in place.

Sized for baby -- approximately 6 to 9 months (15 to 22 lbs) with 3" (7.6 cm) hand measurement (measuring from wrist crease to tip of longest finger).

Actual mitten measurements are:
Hand length: 3" (7.6 cm) measuring from wrist crease to tip of longest finger
Hand width: 2.25" (5.7 cm)

Color: "Antique Rose" — red, pink, rose, peach, orange, red-orange, and gray-blue.
