Joan, of SSKnits, has designed these adorable little mittens for ages 2 - 10 years. Easy to make (no individual fingers to knit) and quick, because they're small, you can knit a pair for your kids, grandkids, nieces & nephews!
You can buy the pattern directly from Joan on Ravelry, or get a copy in the shop. They only take between 75 & 160 yards of worsted weight yarn. One skein wonder!
