  1. I’m an absolute beginner to the whole glove thing so please disregard my ignorance!

    Starting with Row 13 (Left Glove), when you say “continue in cable pattern” are these the correct corresponding (left) cable pattern rows?

    Row 13…Cble Ptn Rw 1
    Row 14…Cble Ptn Rw 2
    Row 15…Cble Ptn Rw 3
    Row 16…Cble Ptn Rw 4

    If so…when I try to work Row 16 as Cble Ptn Rw 4 it doesn’t work. Stitches are off both in placement and number. Am I doing something glaringly wrong???

    Thanks for any help! I really love these mitts and want to get it right!

  2. Looks great! well done…

    great job, love this glove!

  3. Hi Emily,

    I used straight needles to make these and had to sew up the sides, although if you don’t mind knitting with dpn’s then you might want to try that instead to save the sewing! Any sewing saved is good news 🙂

    As for the ‘purling over 14 thumb sts’ I have now amended the pattern to read more clearly that the 14 sts are the ones from the stitch holder, and this process is what partially attaches the previously knitted thumb piece. Thank you for pointing this out as it didn’t make very much sense before!

  4. I’m also a little bit confused by the “purl over 14 thumb stitches”. In the last row, you cast off 8. Are you now casting on new stitches to make a hole for the thumb?

  5. This looks great. What kind of needles are you suggesting? DPNs/Circulars or straights with seaming at the end? Is there grafting at the end for the thumb pieces?
