hey all, i adapted this pattern from "designer one-skein wonders."

the original pattern was clearly and well written, but it just didn't fit my hands right and i had some aesthetic things i wanted to change...



for me, the thumb was too big, so i narrowed the gusset and didn't add as many rows, and the wrist was too short and the finger portion too long, so i moved the gusset up as well.



the heart itself hit me at the wrist, and i didn't like the way it looked, so i changed the pattern (made it a bit wider at the widest part) and moved that up as well, so it was actually on my palm.



the last thing i didn't like was the cable pattern wasn't incorporated into the ribbing, so i finished the ribbing before starting the cable pattern.



ta! thank you for looking, and comments appreciated

These look super comfy.  I've been looking for an interesting cable pattern for mittens and think I might go with your XOXOX.  Now that I've seen it on a completed project I really like it.

thank you all! i highly recommend the pattern, if only because i learned soooo much from it. i feel like i could confidently make cable mitts, ribbed mitts, plain mitts, mitts with pictures on the palm... and know how to adjust for size. it truly was an educational knitting experience (i've been knitting less than a year)
