Has anybody used this pattern before? I'm mostly curious as to the difficulty level. I really like the finished product and would like to maybe consider this for my next project--however, I'm a huge beginner and wouldn't want to pay $5 only to discover this wayyyyy too challenging.

It does say she offers email support with the pattern--anybody have experience with that?

Otherwise I'm thinking some kind of handwear from knitty, since SOMEBODY here will probably have done it and can help me out.

The pattern for the mittens and the hat is also in Charmed Knits - where you can get many other  HP inspired patterns but could also be used as basic patterns for sweaters, scarves, socks, hats etc...

So for 10 plus dollars on Amazon you can get the mitten pattern and much, much more.

I would treat the project as a learning thing.  If you do have to frog a bit it's a small project so it's not that bad as frogging a sweater. Take it slow and learn how to use a life line.

I knit the hat not too long after I first started knitting and it was a breeze.  The instructions are really good and she includes both a chart and line-by-line instructions.  I now like charts best, but at the time I just followed the line-by-line and did exactly what it said and it turned out great.  There were a few little mistakes I made, but they're not noticeable.

I saw that book at, of all things, my university's bookstore. Since I'm technically on staff for the summer, I get some kind of discount there... I am much more encouraged to go check that out now.

I'm definitely the kind of person who needs a fairly challenging project in order to learn something really well, so hopefully this will be it for DPNs.
