These mittens are done with 4-ply yarn. I will have a variation done with 2-ply yarn and a video tutorial showing how to make the mittens. You can make them larger with a larger hook and by adding more stitches at the beginning and adding more increase stitches on round 2.
Crochet Thumbless Baby Mittens 2-ply Yarn
This is two ways to start the pattern.
Start 1: Magic Circle
Start 2: CH 3, join
Round 1: CH 1, 7 SC in loop, do not join. The rest will be worked in a continual round. Attach a scrap piece of yarn for a yarn marker. This is to keep count for the remaining rounds.
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around. (14 Single Crochet total)
Round 3-8: 1 SC in each stitch around (14 Single Crochet total)
This next round is a ribbing variation to gather the mitten opening.
Round 9-10: *1 FPSC in next ST, 1 BPSC in next ST, complete 7 times total from *. Once the rows are complete skip in stitch and slip stitch in the next stitch. This will even out the ridge left by the continual round.
