You did that!!!?

How much would you want for doing a pair of those for me?? I am totally willing to pay for this.

(But I do understand the time commitment and such, just keep me in mind if you start a business of selling knitting stuff)

Thanks for posting your pattern - I'm so excited to cast on. I'm planning on making these in a raspberry color for my sister.

I love these gloves but I'm having trouble with the thumb gusset. I'm not sure how many rows I'm supposted to do all 16 and what about the increase on row four?
thanks, cathy

shanti said...

There is an increase on every 4th row of the thumb gusset. Increase on row 1, 5, 9, 13 and 17. If you work 17 rows you will have 15 stitches for the thumb gusset, which gives you 50 stitches total. Does that make sense?

If you need more help, send me your email address or look me up on ravelry.

Cute. I was online looking for something else and found these so thanks for posting the pattern free

Carolyn said...

I really love this pattern. I occasionally sell some of my knitted creations to friends as a hobby. Would it be ok if I use your pattern, sell the item, but credit the pattern to you? I am keen to obey copyright laws, so I understand if you say no to this request.

Regards, Carolyn

shanti said...

Carolyn,

Feel free to use this pattern for personal use. I would consider selling to friends "personal use" as long as you credit the pattern. If it is a hobby and not a business I have no problem with that.

Hello,

We are putting together a showcase fundraiser to raise money for our dear friend Jaynie who is a midwife and a mother of 3.
She is in her thirties and has an aggressive form of breast cancer, she needs all the support she can get. We appreciate you must get these requests a lot but we would value the gifting of the use of your patterns for our little army of knitters to make some luscious woollies for sale.
This would be a one off event and we would be so happy to credit you on the showcase and direct people to buy your patterns.
Our showcase is called ‘Call the Midwife’ in honour of Jaynie’s midwifery and any support is welcomed.
For more information on Jaynie you can look here.

I love this pattern. Thank you for sharing it with us.

How I wish I could find such a pattern for a 4-year-old's hands. She's at an age that notices that her teenage sisters get knits with design... her's are plain.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!!! What a lovely pattern. Perfect for my little sister- I'll be adding a little delicate lace edging too :) Thank you again!

Sophia said...

I've been working on this pattern. I am using circular needles. Is this worked in the round? The pattern does not say to join and doesn't specify to seam at the end. Also, after you work your 16 rows and get to the increase, the pattern says "Next 3 rows" to do a p1, k5, p1. Is this supposed to be just the 3rd row. It doesn't look right. Maybe if I am working in the round it will look right. Please let me know if I'm supposed to join.

shanti said...

Hi Carole,

Yes, it is knit in the round. Because the pattern is written for dp needles, it does not specify explicitly. Hope it makes more sense this way!

Carole English said...

Thanks. I've reworked it several times. I will try it again in the round. I think that will make a big difference.

I’m trying out these mitts as my first mitten project and I can’t work out what I’m doing wrong - if I follow the written instructions for the left lace pattern I reach the end of my row before I reach the end of the pattern line. What am I doing wrong?

Also is the lace pattern (16 rows) repeated 3 times once mitt is finished? Thus, once you've knitted the first 16 rows you start the lace pattern again but now adding the thumb gusset and then again after the gusset?

So, staring the thumb you start with the 5 rows as set out in the pattern but then how do I continue to get to 50 stitches? Also what does 'work 1 row even' mean?

Now once you have moved over the 15 stitches for the thumb, do you just cast on the new 5 stitches at the beginning of the row to make up 40 stitches again to competed the body?

Sorry :-/ , I'm a complete beginner reading my first pattern. However, I've learned all the stitches necessary to do the project :-).

Thank you!
