This was the first thing I knitted, it's really easy to do and is perfect for someone new to knitting.

I cast on 20 stitches, finished the whole thing and it didn't fit my dad's hand. This needs to have more stitches cast on in order to actually work.

I don't knit with needles. I used the small round loom (with 24 pegs, size 5.5" [14cm]). I cast on 18 pegs and knit back and forth until 8.5". All the other instructions on this pattern were the same. It makes a nice warm pair of cuffs. Thanks Lion Brand.

To up the skill level a bit and eliminate the seam, knit this in the round on double pointed needles for 5-1/2 inches. You'll have to knit one row then purl the next to get the same stitch pattern. Then, here's the slightly tricky part, knit onto the smallest size inch-wise of size 13 circular needles you can find (I used 16") and knit 3-4 rows. This will give you thumb hole. Knit back onto the double pointed needles and finish to the desired length. Bind off and, voila! Seamless cuffs! I knitted one cuff as per the instructions and one in the round. I found the one in the round to be a bit more comfortable due to the seamlessness of it. In terms of actual fit, there didn't seem to be any difference in the two techniques and both fit nicely.

I downsized the needles to 10 so the cuffs would be less bulky. I cast on 21 stitches and increased 1 stitch on rows 11 and 12. I used Fun Fur for the first 5 rows to give it a girly feel.

I made this pair and they were too way too large so I tried sewing the seam closer. Plus the wool stretched out to make matters worse. Decided to try again with a smaller number of stitches, and a different thicker yarn, but am thinking the hand is bigger than the wrist/arm so shouldn't the number of stitches increase? Anybody have any thoughts on this? They are warm and I wear them while I am working on the computer because my hands get cold, but need them to fit better. Thank you!

I am an experienced knitter. Had some left over yarn and tried this. They are just not comfortable or practical. The best thing about knitting is that you can unravel it!

I liked this pattern. I used some old cotton yarn i had in a box and I made the cuff smaller. If you want it to fit you,though, you have to put more than fifteen stitches. I put twenty seven stitches and it was still kinda small.

Took the advice to knit two at a time and that was fantastic! took me 2 hours to do a set and they were exactly the same. Especially the tension and the length...great tip. Thanks! 5 more pairs to knit this season! :)

Easy and fun pattern to do! Dress it up with some fancy buttons or embroidery on the top of the mitten!
