This pattern is available from for $5.50.

Errata In Round 1, 7” size, pattern reads “6 loops on hook” after pulling up the cable loops and working the LL cluster. The correct number is 7 (loops on the hook).
Notes should include: Main body fronts and backs are worked in a 2-hdc cluster pattern; all clusters are made in the second st of the cluster below unless otherwise indicated.
Stitch Guide should include: Cl (cluster): 2 hdc in indicated st.
“Rows 3 – 39/43/49” should read “Rows 3 – 40/44/50: Rep Row 2.”
“Row 40/44/50” should read “Row 41/45/51” (joining row).

Right Mitt:
Rnd 5 - There should be a ch 1 before each of the 3 cables. Also, the instructions to join LL at the end of each cable is missing.
Rnd 9 - The LL stitch is missing inside the brackets.
Rnd 13 - LL stitch missing inside the brackets.
Rnd 15, Size M/L – Thumb area: skipping stitch after single cable, hdc in each hdc across and in 1st hdc of next cl.
Rnd 17, size M/L – Should say “3 times” after the brackets.
Left Mitt
Rnd 2 – Towards end of round, “ch 1, cable, LLhdc in next hdc” should read “ch 1, cable, LLcl in next hdc”.
Rnd 3 – “LLhdc in 2nd hdc of same cl” should read “LLcl in 2nd hdc of same cl”.
Rnd 5 - LL stitches missing inside the brackets.

Mini-cables made with an exciting new technique adorn the backs and outline the thumbs of these cleverly constructed mitts crocheted from the bottom up. Stretchy slip-stitch ribbing keeps the top and bottom edges soft and secure.
