Hi!  I'm knitting these up for Christmas for my mom.  I'm making them plain without the skulls, and I'm making them both at the same time.  batslovefruit or Lacey (or anyone else who's made these!), I'm having a hard time knowing when I hit the 47th row.  I wasn't keeping count as I knit.  Will the pattern get smaller if I'm not decreasing?  Is there an easier way to figure this out? 

Here's what batslovefruit's pattern says:
Work in pattern until the 47th row (youll see this on your pattern as the place where the mitten starts to get smaller.)

47th row: Youre knitting the back of the hand portion: k2tog, knit to within two stitches of the side of the pattern, slip 1, k1, psso (Remember to keep in pattern!) Slip a stitch marker onto the needle. K2tog, knit to within last 3 stiches, slip 1, k1, psso, k1.
Next row: purl as usual, keeping in patter.
Repeat these two rows twice more.

On the next purl row, p1, p2tog, purl across to within 2 stitches of marker, p2 tog. Now youre on the back of the hand/patterned part. P2tog and purl across (in pattern) to within 2 stitches of the end, p2tog. Decrease in this way on both the knit and the purl rows until there are 16 stitches left on the needle. Cut a long tail of yarn, and with the tapestry needle thread through the loops of the remaining stitches to secure them.

At this point, youre mitten is off the needles. You can put your hand in it and get a feel for how it will be when you sew it up. For extra warm mittens (and especially if they feel a bit roomy) this would be the time to sew in the fleece lining to the mittens.
Sew up the seams and your mitten is done!

WOW those are so awesome! Very intricate looking. That'll take me some time to work up the guts to try that...

I really like the pattern up until the part where I got confused!  But, I'm making them the "easy" way -- no cool skulls!  I don't think my mom would appreciate them!

Did you ever figure this out? I want to make a plain pair also but this row 47 thing  seems confusing to me too. It doesn't specifically say to decrease so how does it get smaller? Any help would be great. Thanks.

I think what I did was to keep trying them on.  I don't remember, but after holding my breath and diving in, they turned out beautifully!

I can't help you with your problem, but I can say that it DOES say to decrease -- that's what k2tog is!
