Teeny tiny

I made tiny little mittens for my friends' baby. Here's a picture:

The pattern is Knituition's Nordic Baby Mittens, with a few minor design changes. First, I shrank them a little bit to fit a newborn, rather than a six-month-old. I cast on 36 stitches and increased up to 42, instead of the 40 and 46 in the original pattern. I also used Kitchner stitch on the top, instead of three needle bind-off. Finally, I designed my own stranded motif, which was necessary since I'm using fewer stitches than Knituition's pattern. Here's the chart I worked out:

Feel free to nab it if you decide to make your own teeny tiny baby mittens.

Oh those are too cute! Those would be perfect for me to ease myself into colorwork.
