ISO Mittern pattern - easy

Hi there,

This is my first post after using this site to learn to knit…it’s great :cheering:

I’m in search of a very easy free 2-needle knitting pattern for mittens for my 2 year old daughter. I can cast on, knit, purl and cast off, and can yo and K2tog. Most patterns that I have found are for dpns, which I haven’t got, and seem really complicated. Can anyone help?

Many thanks :smiley:

[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”][FONT=“Comic Sans MS”]Thanks so much for the links to the mittens. I’ve just learned to knit and while I’m fairly comfortable with the basics, and have even been doing cabling, I am daunted by the idea of mittens and socks! :passedout:[/FONT][/COLOR]
