Vinita Mitts Jr, a Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet fingerless gloves for girls, a FREE crochet pattern by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

If you have visited my blog before, you may have seen my original Vinita Mitts pattern. I mentioned there how much Baby wanted a pair of her own. Well, like any mom, I spoil my youngest, so I had to make her a pair.

You, dear readers, get to benefit from her request. This pattern makes the same fingerless mitts in smaller sizes for your littles. This pattern includes a carry-along thread made by Kreinik that is sparkly, and of course, big bows made with ribbon. Many thanks to Kreinik for providing the thread. This pattern could easily work without the sparkle or the bows if you have a recipient that would not care for those.
