The pattern starts at the cuff. Chain 20. If this chain fits the child’s wrist, then the mittens will be the correct size. Join with slip stitch (sl st) in first chain to form a ring. Take care not to twist the stitches.
Round 1: Chain (ch)2, double crochet (dc) in same ch as joining ch, and in each ch all the way around for a total of 20dc. Join with sl st in 2nd ch of beginning ch-2.
Round 2: Chain 2. **FPdc around next stitch. BPdc around next stitch.** Repeat**to**until all the way around. This makes 10FPdc’s and 10BPdc’s. Join.
Repeat Round 2 until the cuff measures about 2 inches(5cm).
From now on, work in continuous rounds. Do not join rounds, or else a seam will be visible.
Round 1: Sc in each st all the way around, making 20sc.
Round 2: 2sc in first st, then sc in next 9sts, 2sc in next st, sc the rest of the way around, making 22sc.
Round 3 to 8: Repeat rounds 1 and 2 three more times. Each round will increase by 2sc. Round 8 should have 28 sc. Place a marker. Don’t fasten off.
Rounds 1 & 2: Sc in each st around to 4 sts before marker, skip next 8 sts to make the thumb opening. Sc in each remaining st. This round makes 20sc for the fingers, and leaves 8 sts open for the thumb. Don’t work the thumb until the pattern states to do so.
Round 3: Sc in next st and in each st of the fingers-section around. Again, this round makes 20sc.
Round 4: 2sc in first st, then sc in next 9sts, 2sc in next st, sc the rest of the way around, making 22sc.
Rounds 5 & 6: Repeat rounds 2 and 3. The end of round 6 should have 24sc.

Round 2: **Sc in next st, sc2tog.** Repeat from **to** 6 times for a total of 12sc.
Round 3: **Sc2tog** 6 times to make 6sc. Join with sl st. Fasten off, leaving a tail. Weave tail through stitches of last round. Gather the top of the mitten securely.
Round 1: Join with sc in first skipped stitch of thumb opening, leaving a tail. Sc in each remaining st around thumb opening for a total of 8sc.
Round 2: Sc all the way around.
