The Marley’s Garden pattern is for a pair of mittens but if you prefer mitts, you could easily adapt the pattern to create a mitt version ending with a repeat of the Twined Herringbone Edging.
If you have any comments or find any discrepancies in the pattern, I would greatly appreciate a PM. Thank you!
Note about the introductory free Marley’s Garden download available late Summer 2011.
I am just made aware that Ravelry, at this time, is unable to identify recipients of free downloads. Therefore, updates (i.e. errata - currently none, and pattern additions) cannot be sent if you are a current holder of one of the free downloads. There are provisions to only send updates if the pattern was purchased or manually gifted (i.e. to my test knitters). I do hope you enjoy your original Marley’s Garden pattern! If there is any forthcoming errata, I will list it here. Thank you!
