Mini mitten ornament pattern

A request has been made for the pattern for the mini mitten ornament. Here it is:

I use Size 4 double-pointed needles and worsted weight red wool yarn.

Cast on 20 stitches. Divide among three needles.
K2P2 for five rows.
K three rows.
Put three stitches on holder, CO 3 stitches.
K 12 rows.
K2tog for one row. Knit a row. K2tog another row and draw needle through remaining stitches and secure.

Thumb: Pick up 4-5 stitches around the thumb opening.
K 7 rows.
K2tog for two rows. Draw needles through stitches and secure.

Weave in ends, except for one at base of ribbing. Make two mittens and tie two ends of yarn together.

Hey there,

If you want to write this up and take a picture or two of the finished objects, I'd love to publish it in FOR THE LOVE OF YARN http://www.fortheloveofyarn.com

Let me know!
