I am extremely impressed! I can never read patterns either and was beginning to despair of making one up. I think I'll give it a try, though. Do you have an idea of about how much yarn you used (in yards/meters)?

It's right around a skein of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride bulky per mitten. One skein is 125 yards (114 metres) and 4 oz (113 grams), so twice that.  The trim was just scrap bits. 20 yards tops?

Umbrellamaker, thank you, thank you.  I am definately going to try this.  Hopefully before it turns too warm to wear them.  Thank you for making the pattern for those of us that cannot play by ear.

I'm almost done with a pair.  They turned out kinda wierd, but some of it I kind of winged since I didn't have the instructions with me.

It's my first pair of gloves.  They look a wee bit random, like coral.  I'll take pics later.

after a few wears, the crochet's conformed to my hand better, and the fingers look more even.  unfortunately, i don't have a before picture.  trust me though --- i coulda definitely done a better job with the fingers.

i haven't decided yet if i'm going to go 'round the edges with a contrasting color or not.  i'm leaning towards no, 'cause i'm itching to do other projects.

picture time:





the left mitten bit is kind of wonky too.  I couldn't figure out how the original pattern's mitt part worked.  Somehow I got larger and larger.  So I just stitched into the fabric and around, leaving the palm side open and decreasing as needed.  I decreased a wee bit too fast/much with the first/left one.

I also love your mitten pattern. I like the basketweave pattern that the back/forward loop stitching makes.  Here are mine:

I still don't have a clue as to how to post pictures on the board

One ended up slightly larger than the other, I think I was more tense today than yesterday!  I still plan on wearing them, with the one that fits better on the right hand.  They were perfect for a have to have wool/acrylic blend in an off color that I loved.
