If you are looking for a charity project for a local homeless shelter, or to gift to families in need for this Christmas, this pattern is it. You can use the nicer quality (ie. softer) yarn worsted weight, like Red Heart Soft or the Loops and Threads Impeccable (SO many great colors!), and you can probably crochet 2 pair of mittens with one skein.

I wish there was a size...are these women's, kids ???

Hi there, This pattern is meant for adults but can be adjusted for all ages. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

This pattern is confusing, speciall where the thumb starts. I crochet the first four stiches, marked the fifth, sc 21 stiches, then skip 8 stichtes? This is where you lost me. There are not 8 stitches to skip. The cuff also seems very small. Can you explain the skip 8 stitches part? Thank you.

Hi there, We have contacted the designer of this pattern and will update as soon as we received more information. Thanks!
