  1. Great pattern – I’m on it! I see quick, everyone-will-love-them, Xmas gifts in my future.
    You look so delighted with your mitts, I was sure you’d wear them through the tutorial. 😉

  2. Hi Stacy,
    I would like to make the mittens and a matching hat for my adult stepson. Could I just take a basic hat pattern and add the thrums?

  3. Amy – hmmm…possibly. Chances are, however, that the thickness of the thrums is going to make the hat too small, unless the hat is very stretchy. If you’re unsure and not wanting to take the risk, I suggest finding a hat pattern that is designed with thrums. You can search Ravelry to find what you’re looking for.

  4. Hi Staci,
    I’m really looking forward to making these mittens! I have a question about the round after the ribbing. How many rounds after the ribbing require a M1? It looks like the pattern says to do it twice, but the stitch count doesn’t change after the 2nd round with a M1. Thanks!

  5. I’m having a hard time in a few spots on the pattern. Is there a way to reach you so I’m not sharing the pattern openly? I think I’m over thinking things a little, which I often do!
