Mother's Day and Mama Mitts

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas!!
I thought it might be the perfect day to offer up another free pattern just for the mamas.

My darling son that wanted the Turtle Mitts also requested that I have a pair to match.
This pattern takes so little yarn and whips up so quickly, that it's a great project to knock out in an evening or two.

This pattern is worked in the round using either DPN’s or circular needles.
Needle: Size US 8

Gauge: 4sts/inch

Begin Increases: Row 1.M1R, Seed St 18, M1R,  K18
                Row 2. knit in pattern
Repeat increases 2 more times. total increase 6 sts.
(1st M1R knit in seed st, 2nd M1R in knit st so that stitches stay even)
