I always had these little thumbless mitts on my daughter when she was tiny but my version always had a string to attach them. I would run the string through the sleeves of her sweater or jacket. Nowadays I am not sure if this is considered safe so I didn’t add a string to the pattern. Mittens on a string sure are cute though!
Have fun with your tiny Baby Mitts!
