    Seems like a baby that age would put mitts in mouth and could choke on flower decorations by sucking on them. I love the pattern, I just leave off flower.

      Yes Kimberley, the flower was only put on for decoration and photographic purposes. It’s up to the individual to adorn as they wish. All my rosebuds, flowers etc are always optional.

    Thank you very much for sharing your patterns. Iā€™m only back doing crochet after about a 50 year absence. Started very young but rem the basic stitches. But never had the UK v US experience so I love it when pattern makers either identify which is which or give the option to choose one version.
