New Pattern

Hi everyone. I am back. Been knitting my fingers off. The pattern for Emily is finally up at Knit Picks and ready for download should you want it. Now working on two more patterns which should be ready before too long if I don't keep getting sidetracked. Neighbor is pregnant so, of course, that meant putting everything aside while I made a cuddle sack and bonnet for the new baby. Then I spotted a request on Ravelry for warm items for a charity called Camp Happy. Every year they have a camp for children with cancer. It seems many of the kids come from needy families and show up at camp without many of the things they need . Corporate sponsors can provide a lot, but there are some things only knitters can do. One of the things requested was mittens. I decided to make some fingerless mittens to send and then found there are very few fingerless mitten pattern for children. I did find one or two but in yarns the wrong weight. I didn't want to go to all the trouble of changing the gauge so came up with a pattern of my own which I am sharing with you.

These mittens will fit an 8 to 10 year old. I made the pattern based on the average measurements for a child's hand at that age. You will find the pattern listed under free patterns. Enjoy.
