How is it that mittens just mysteriously never stay on the our kid’s hands? Sigh. I try to be okay with that - after all, there’s so much to explore and play with and touch and feel! So this is a mitten pattern for when those little rebels need a little warmth for their hands, before promptly casting them off again to continue playing.
Rebel are designed “seamless”: you cast on the tip of one mitten, work through the body and cuff before binding off to just a few stitches which you then use for an i-cord. You work said i-cord to the desired length, then you cast on the rest of the stitches for the cuff and work your way up the mitten to the very top. You can of course always omit the i-cord, bind off the full mitten and work up a second one, should you not want them attached to each other. All sizes except for the newborn size are designed with an afterthought thumb.
