OK My grandson is 4 months old and for Christmas I would like to make him a Hat and Mitten set. I have the hat pattern picked out, http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/baby-child/puffin-child-hat.html
The mittens are putting me in quite a befuddled state. Should I make them with a thumb or leave the thumb out?
The hat he will be able to wear for several years but the mittens will be for this year only.
So should I thumb them or not?
