Oh I wish I could remember where I first saw these tiny mittens. Ugh. I simply can't find the link even after googling. Sorry about that. I somehow ended up looking at these a few days ago and I didn't print out the pattern. I just made mine up based on what I saw. There is a free pattern somewhere out there. Let me know if you know the link to this pattern. I made the three pairs above with sock yarn scraps. It always feels good to use up those little ends. I knitted on US size 1 dpns. The mittens are a little less than 2 inches in length.
I started on the boa scarf from this same book where you knit through the middle of one piece, passing the stitches to the other side before knitting the rest of the piece. It is a pretty fun technique. You have to knit lots and lots of these X's and you string them along as you go. We'll see how far I get.
