- A lot of fun
These mittens are a lot of fun to produce. The instructions are very clear, the results are very true to the photos. Grandson, just learning to talk, thinks they are great fun. Only issue for me is the plastic paste-on eyes. Not a good idea with 2 year olds. Instead I used Colonial knots (figure 8 knots) for the iris, and double chains for the whites of the eye. All yarn No choking hazard.
- Grand-daughters loved them
I found this an easy pattern to follow and my grand-daughters (4 & 6) were delighted with them.
