I made this pattern for four reasons:
1. I wanted to try crochet ribbing
2. I wanted to write my own crochet pattern
3. I wanted to use the pretty silk yarn I've been coveting for months
4. I wanted some mittens for my belly bean
Since the baby is due in 5 weeks, I'm feeling a massive surge of nesting. But I'm not interested in cleaning so much as knitting and crocheting. Now that I am out of work until the baby arrives, I've got plenty of time to get lots of projects done for baby. So you get to benefit!
Now this is only the second pattern I've ever written, so please let me know if you've come across any errors or if you have any questions. I will definitely do my best to help you. Also, I've never used the scribd site before, so if it sucks, let me know and I will put the PDF somewhere else.
I really hope that you enjoy this pattern as much as I enjoyed making it :)
