Crochet Toddler Mittens
I made these cute mittens for my 15 month old daughter to keep her hands cozy during the winter months.

2hdctog=2 half double crochet together decrease
I measured my 15 month old wrists, they were about 4.25 inches around. You can take the cuff before you sew it together and see if will fit, but you want it a little loose so you can fit it over the child's wrist.
