Gauge with size 8 needles: 5 sts = 1" 6 rows=1" Both mittens can be knitted at the same time. Simply use 2 skeins of the same yarn, or yarn from the middle and outside of the same skein. Cast on 2 mittens on the same needle and work across using the yarn from one skein for one mitten and yarn from the other skein for the 2nd mitten. Works great!

I've been feeling like making some mittens lately and decided I'd make some for the mitten drive. WELL! ... after muddling my way through two patterns for kids' mittens that made my head ache (left inc here, right inc there, purl dec the other place) and didn't even come out that well, I thought "geesh! I just want to make some warm mittens for some kids. These patterns are like making my family a ten-course gourmet meal when all they really want is a good meatloaf and some mashed potatoes!" LOL ... and then I found your pattern for 2 needle kids mittens. i've almost finished the first pair already! Your pattern is a joy -simple and easy to follow. The mittens are just nice, warm kids' mittens. I'm thrilled! Thank you so much for publishing it!" Warm regards, Vicki Brooker
