Thumbless baby mittens knitting pattern:

Knitting the cuff of thumbless mittens for baby:

Cast on 30 sts onto smaller needles, place marker and join to work in the round. As the number of stitches not that big you can use 4 instead of 5 double pointed knitting needles. Work k1, p1 until cuff reaches 6 cm or 2.5 inches.

If you think the cuff is too long just fold it back.

Knit the second pair. Now you are free to decorate it as you like. It can be small crochet flowers or interesting applique. In my case I decided to make pearls embroidery as it gives more tenderness for the girl’s set. Make a mini car applique if you are knitting the set for your boy.
