"No Scratch" Mitts

At Jane's request I also attempted to make these itsy bitsy mitts for a newborn. I based them on the booties I already made for her, and have no idea if they are a good size or not. I used Bernat Love Bug (same as for the booties). Here is the pattern (probably very poor) for them.

#5 needles, cast on 20 sts
K first row.
k1, p1 rib next 3 (4?) rows.
Switch to #6 needles
k1, p1 moss stitch until piece measures 21/4 inches (end on a p).
row 1: k2tog, (p1, k1) 3 times, p2 tog, k2tog, (p1, k1) 3 times, p2tog
row 2: moss stitch
row 3: p2tog, (k1, p1) 2 times, k2tog, p2tog, (k1, p1) twice, k2tog
row 4: moss stitch
row 5: k2tog, p1, k1,p2tog, k2tog, p1, k1, p2tog
row 6: moss st
Cut 10" tail. Weave through remaining 8 sts, pull tightly. Stitch seam shut.
