Kim M Gregory, I think it is still being passed down, but isn't as popular as the days when they made the doilies so much or in the '70s when it was part of the hippie movement. Thanks for visiting the page.

Crochet is such a lost art. Nice to see that some folks out there are still interested in this craft.

lucybell21, Thanks for commenting. It makes me think of the 3 little kitten who lost their mittens. My kids were always losing theirs. That is why I learned how to crochet them. I'm happy the hub brought back some memories.

Thank you Barbara for all these websites about crochet patterns. This is one of my hobbies, so I will definitely be checking out these sites. Thank you for sharing! I am also bookmarking this hub. I have voted this hub useful and beautiful.

Who can have to many cute mittens!

mittens are warmer than gloves, and remind me of back in the day when I was a little girl.
