It’s very hard for my 2 year old son to keep his mittens on, so I wanted a pair that he can’t take off easily and that is why I created this pattern for extra long mittens.
The cuff stretches out quite a bit and the mittens are pretty wide, so these mittens are perfect from the age of 2 to 4, depending of course on the yarn you are going to use and the size of your hook. These mittens are easy adjustable and so I added notes in the pattern where you can add rows to make them a bit bigger.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message and I would be happy to help. Have fun!
