I just love this pattern! I made a pair for a friend's son to match a hat I made. I was just wondering, since it wasn't listed, what's your policy on selling the finished project?

do you have the hat pattern as well would like to make both for the little boy i look after his mum is going to collage so i mind him for free and he's always losing his mittens and hats i've bought him lots but thought hand knitted would be cheaper for me and warmer for him and i plan to secure the mittens with the old fashioned peace of wool lol

Okay! Its posted! I just wrote it really quickly, so if there's a bug just let me know. :)

Thanks!

--I'm glad you like the mitten pattern! I have seen people knit a long i-cord and put it through the sleeves of the coat.

Hi,
I’m writing to you because I’d love to contribute a guest post.

I’ve been brainstorming some topics that I think your readers would get a ton of value. Here is a sample of my blog http://littleknittingfairy.co.uk/knitting-craft-makes-comeback/

I’ll make sure the piece overflows with information that can’t be found anywhere else.

Cheers,
Joan
