Hi Mary, just saw your comment on Joan hand-warmers.  I agree they certainly are fabulous.  I see you are looking for a crochet pattern.  There is one in the KAS Pattern book.  It is very easy, if I may say so myself :-)   The only thing is to make sure the ribbing goes around the hand so the HW stretches as the child grows.  Looking forward to a photo of your crochet HWs.
