This free pattern was designed to go with this pom pom beanie. Together they will make a lovely gift set for any baby shower, whether a boy or a girl.

Finished Size

These crochet baby mitts are designed to fit a newborn. If you’d need something a bit bigger, you might like these baby mittens for a 3-6-month-old.

The Yarn

I used Red Heart: Baby Hugs Light. It is a light #3 Dk weight yarn for babies. It has been discontinued, but any similar baby yarn should work as a substitute.
