I need a few testers for these luxurious silk mittens. I would expect feedback with pctures underway and when done, and I need at least mitten to be done by the end of April.
The pattern contains 12 pages of written instructions, photo tutorials and charts. It has a separate section called Tips and Explanations, where you find useful tips for how to get the best result.
Gauge and Size:
My gauge is 36 sts & 36 rows in two stranded knitting in the round. The size of the mitten can be slightly adjusted by increasing or decreasing gauge, but as is, it fits the average female hand.
