Was making my dh some mittens for christmas.Followed the directions exactly,count all stitches carefully.Did each step as directed.And what did I end up with? A weird looking thing that looked no more like a mitten than the Goodyear blimp  Cry.So ripped out again and same result.My dh couldn't get his hand through the bottom of it if he tried. Roll Eyes.So I gave up  Cry.

Oh no! What a bummer. Do you have the pattern? Maybe we could help or maybe you could try a different pattern?

I just gave up on making that pattern.It was Lion Brand mitten pattern.After I ripped it out for the umteenth time.I reread it again and did it again same result.So now I'm thiking about making something else but Idk what?He's very hard to make stuff for.Idk if I was too stressed out while doing the mitten or maybe I did the wrong hook.or what so that idea is out .
