Hello wonderful people of Knitting Help!!

I was looking for mitten patterns the other day and I thought of an idea that I would LOVE to knit, but I am not cool enough to create a pattern for it. Maybe some of you have ideas...or have already seen a pattern like it?
My idea is for the most part pretty basic. I've already thought of a name....ahahah: 'Heart in Hand'. It's basically just a regular mitten, (like this only without the stripes: http://www.chroniclebooks.com/Chronicle/excerpt/0811835332-e2.html) but with a different coloured heart in the palm. What do you think?
happy knitting!

Your link doesn't work, so we can't see the design you are referring to.

Here (http://www.chroniclebooks.com/Chronicle/excerpt/0811835332-e2.html) is the corrected link(you had a ')' at the end of it).

Instead of going through the hassle of creating your own mitten pattern, why not take an easy one off the internet and just add a heart chart? :shrug:

The easiest way would be to just make a plain mitten, then add a heart with duplicate stitch.

Here's a pattern that you could take a look at:

(the blue one in the picture has a heart on it)
