December 1st 2012: New .pdf is available for download that includes corrected instruction for the left hand glove

From the pattern notes…

“Don’t lose your mitts again! These cuffs are easy to pull up over your wrists so you can wash your hands or take care of any other dirty business without taking them off. The long sleeved version will keep your arms warm on an early morning run, and the short version fits nicely under a jacket sleeve. A seed stitch or ribbed flap on the back of the hand can be flipped over the top of your hand to cover your fingers, keeping you extra toasty warm.”

Additional notes:

  • Finding the gloves a little tight? They have successfully been knit on larger needles to fit a larger hand.
  • Try any other reversible stitch pattern on the top flap for your own unique look!
  • Some have found the instruction “pick up and knit the yarn between the purl bumps” a little unclear… for a WONDERFUL explanation courtesy of schrouderknits, check out her forum post here:
