  1. I’ve been looking for a pattern with this amount of detail in worsted with no success and then I just happened across your blog and here is your beautiful pattern – exactly what I was hoping for – thank you so much!

  2. I LOVE this mitten pattern, but I’m confused betwen rows 30 and 32 … Somehow my count is continually off.

    As of row 28, 35 stitches are in the palm side.
    Then in row 29, 5 stitches are added for a total of 40
    In Row 30, 12 stitches are put on a holder, leaving 28 stitches, then 7 stitches are cast back on, for a total again of 35.

    No instructions are given for row 31, but by looking at the chart, there are only 33 stitches through row 58.

    How/where are the extra two stitches cast off or removed or ?? Should there only be 5 stitches cast back on in row 30? Does that leave a big enough hole for the thumb?

    Thank you!

  3. oh, oops, I forgot to ask …

    This is the first pair of mittens I’ve ever knit so while I can knit the pattern, I’m a bit sketchy on how to reverse everything so the two hands end up mirroring each other with the thumb holes in the middle.

    Do I make another copy of the pattern and then follow from left to right? Or ?? (sorry if this is a dumb question …)

    Thanks again!

  4. Thumb gusset problems have been resolved and a corrected version of the pattern is now available. Thank you very much Gabrielle!

  5. These mittens are just beautiful!

    I knitted the first one like a breeze but the second one gave me a hard time! It just started to make sense once I read this post. I was happy to see that I was correct to have 35 st on row 26 and 40 st on row 29. It would be helpful to have that added to the pattern, you know you are on the right track.

    Where I got very confused is with row 30: the k20 was calculated on 35 st. when it should have been 40 from row 29. So for that row, I did the following: k25, put 14 stitches on a stitch holder, cast on 7 stitches and k1 (you end up with 33). I’m pretty sure the thumb will end up in the same place as the first mitten (I hope so very much anyway!)

    But overall, it’s a very nice pattern! it was my first colorwork project and it won’t be my last!

  6. I think you are an inspiration to all!! Amazing story, God Bless your Mother, my Mom is in remission from lung cancer (never smoked a day in her life, this caught us all by surprise, your creations are beautiful. Keep hope alive.
