Notes

I started out using the Braided Mitts pattern by Tera Johnson, but when I knitted up this yarn using this pattern, the fit was poor. This is no fault of the pattern; rather it was a combination of my yarn choice and my wonky row gauge.

I ended up frogging and then modifying the pattern as follows:

  • Cast on 48 stitches
  • knit 24 rounds of 2 x 2 ribbing for the wrist cuff
  • work thumb gusset increases every 4th round, increasing the gusset to 17 stitches
  • work the gusset increases on the same round as the cable crosses, starting with rnd 7 of the cable pattern
  • end with 8 rounds of 2 x 2 rib
  • work the thumb on 20 stitches instead of 16
  • work one plain round on thumb before starting the ribbing
