As the Fairmount Fibers website says:
These intricate handwarmers use the motif from the “Peony” vest from Silk Blend Collection 3. If that vest seems too daunting but you love the look, this is the perfect project. Change up the colors to come up with your own unique pair!
Error Alert: It has come to my attention that the pattern as printed contains the following errors:
Needles size: The correct needle sizes are 4(3.5mm) and 3(3.25 mm), not 6(4mm) and 3(3.25) as indicated in the published pattern.
Chart: Begin reading the chart as printed with pattern round 8. Please refer to the picture for correct pattern placement. Apologies. I have no idea why the chart provided was altered.
