Create these super cute toddler cupcake mittens (ages 2-4)!  These mittens feature the crocodile stitch to create cute ruffle detail, sure to make your little one smile! These mittens work up fast and use a small amount of medium worsted weight yarn in 4 colors and size I crochet hook.

The finished mitten measures 3″ wide and 6″ from the cuff to the top of the mitten (doesn’t include the cherry). Make it a set with the matching cupcake hat pattern HERE. Enjoy the free patterns!
