Crochet Velvet Baby Mittens Pattern

Velvet Baby Mittens work up in less than 20 minutes!

Happy New Years Friends! Over the holidays, my 17 months old daughter and I were visiting family in Canada. It was cold and baby girl needed some mittens! Luckily, I packed some velvet yarn and designed these simple but very cute Velvet Baby Mittens for her!

These mittens take less than 20 minutes to make and use minimal supplies! I used Bernat Baby Velvet but you can substitute for any other medium (4) weight yarn as long as you are able to reach gauge for accurate sizing. The pattern includes instructions for 3 sizes: Small (0-6 months), Medium (6-12 months), and Large (12-18 months).

Work between Round 10 (small) / 14 (medium) / 16 (large) and the cuff: Round 11 (small) / 15 (medium) / 17 (large). Using your hook to pull, thread through every 3-4 STs until you make it all the way around the mitten. Tie with a bow and cut excess cord.
