How about a simple pair of adorable mittens for the wee folk in your life? These are a great way to keep their small fingers warm. Since they work up in jiffy they are perfect for a sudden snowstorm! They also make a great last minute gift so why not knit some for the holidays?
The Sugarboo Mittens pattern is available on Ravelry and includes three sizes ranging from 12 months to 6 years of age. They only take about 40 - 80 grams of a heavy DK or light worsted yarn - that means they work up fast and are a great way to use up odds and ends from other projects.
I hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I do. Now I'm off to knit my own Sugarboo another pair!
