< TIE STRING >
I used a shiny cord for the tie but you can use a crocheted string or a ribbon. Cut a 12" piece for each mitt and weave it in and out of the stitches on the first row of the cuff. Using the sewing needle and coordinating thread, stitch the center of the tie string in place so the baby cannot pull it free from the mitt.
