It gets pretty cold here and I know my little boy plays outside a lot when he's at school in the morning. He has a pair of thin, cotton gloves that are hardly warm and kind of tough for him to put on by himself. So, as you can see from the pictures, I made him some mittens.

I used a great tutorial for the convection mittens that I pinned here. It's from a guest post by foxflat on whipup and I especially loved it because it was beautifully illustrated with hand-drawn images. You don't see that much these days in online tutorials and it was very refreshing! You should definitely take a look at it, even if you aren't going to make a pair of the mittens.

I loved the convection mittens pattern. It was clear and easy to follow. I mixed the colors up for my little boy's mittens. He loves blue. I had three shades of blue left over from the gnome hats. Perfect! I made two small modifications to the mitten pattern: (1) I used fleece for the inner and outer layers of the mittens. (2) I added elastic to the waist so they wouldn't slide of my little guy's hands.

I am so please with how they turned out...and my guy loves them. The convection mitten pdf pattern is definitely a success and I will be keeping it!
