knitted :: Child’s Chevron Love

After the boys saw my Chevron Love Mittens, they asked me to make them each a pair. Nevermind that they will outgrow them in a flash, how could a mama say no to that?
Both boys wanted red-white-and-blue. Tiny Dancer asked for chevrons just like mine. Little Buddha has something else entirely in mind, but he has allowed me to wait until late summer to make his, since we are almost past mitten-wearing season (she says hopefully).

Mods for fit:
CO 48
Knit three chevrons before starting thumb gusset
Knit 23 sts, work thumb gusset chart, knit 22 sts

I also blunted the end of the mitten by stopping the chart decreases when there are 16 sts total left, then kitchenering together. I somehow ended up with one mitten ending in red and the other in white. But TD doesn’t mind. In fact, he says he loves them.
