Santa Claus Mittens

Lion Brand® Lion® Chenille - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

14 sc + 13 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with MC.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

This was the first time I've ever made mittens and I found this pattern to be both quick and easy to follow. My niece wore them for the local Christmas parade and LOVED them!
