Number 9 is not making any sense to me, being that this is my first time making mittens. It's telling you to put in more stitches and spaces than there are in that row. Even if I keep going past the edge of that row and work down over the edge of the thumb shape, by the time I get to the last sc indicated, I am way past the "marked sc" that I'm supposed to put it in. I don't get it. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!

Hello, I have contacted the designer and will update the pattern as soon as I have more information. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

i don't understand how to start the thumb - any advice? Thank you.

Ok what am I not getting? Seems easy till I get to #8 were it say's repeat row 2 till you have 30 sc then from there on out it gets confusing. Just learning to crochet mittens.

Trying again. I made several for presents for Christmas. Easy, love the pattern. Used different crochet hooks and yarns for different sizes for kids and adults. Used fun fur on cuffs on girls mittens. Got to the point where I could make one without looking at the pattern!!! Thanks for a great pattern!!

I wrote a comment a few days ago, and they said it would come up soon. Where did it go?

I'm assuming this pattern fits adults only?? Do you have it in childrens?

Sounds like it would be warmer than other mittens, will certainly try these, thank you , Barbara

I like the pattern; it looks quick and easy, However, it would be nice if it included instructions for two or three more in children's sizes and in a regular worsted yarn. Jeanne
