I love these cute mittens! I think it would be adorable to turn them into a garland. What do you guys think?

Could someone tell me where is Row 4

The pattern says "Row 2 and all even rows: Purl." So my guess would be that - Row 4: Purl

I absolutely love this pattern! It is so quick and easy to make! These are perfect for a small Christmas gift!
