Go for it! I bet that when you finish those tiny mittens, you'll be ready to make some full-size ones as well.

Excellent plan!

I think you should try to make ONE mitten, with us helping along the way. I bet you'll figure it out for sure. And as Ingrid says, "Trust the pattern". I think that when you see all the stitches in your hands, the pattern instructions will make more sense. I know it was that way for me when I made a Christening Gown and when I made the helmetliner for a soldier:
