  5. I love the appliques! I've been using them to decorate various items I have made for my baby daughter. (Though I can't work out how to do the star.) Thank you so much for making them available.

    I would love to make these baby mittens as well, but you haven't included a gauge and I don't know what size 8 yarn means :-(

  6. Hi Fjordalv, thanks for your comment!
    If you're familiar with size 10 thread, you wont have much problem using this pattern. size 8 thread is just a little bit thicker than the size 10.
    I will edit the pattern to include gauge, later (hope I remember to do it soon ;)

  9. Hi Mimi, I'm a beginner and the pattern does seem really simple to follow, however I am confused about one part. The part where I'm suppose to "turn to the other side of the foundation chain"on round one, am I suppose to turn to the back of the stitches I have already created or am I suppose to add to the bottom side of the foundation chain(kinda like what you would do if you were making the sole part for a pair of booties) Please help. I absolutely love the mittens and this is the easiest pattern I have found to follow. Thanks so much

  10. Hi, thanks for your question.
    Yes, its like making the sole part of a pair of booties. You'll also be working only on the right side of the stitches for rnds 1-13.
