Such a pretty pattern! I don't wear mittens and don't know who would, but the fox part would be a precious pattern on a jacket or a sweater yoke. I am going to save the chart and play with it. Or... I don't know. Looking at the instructions, I might go ahead and make the mittens! It looks like fun and I could always give them to charity.
