What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use cheap yarn because ive done two different mitts of the 5 in 1 and i dont like either one!

Well this pair turned out great, and of course they are the most perfect color!

I also used cheap yarn for the first two pair of plain mitts. I usually use a size 7 for worsted weight yarn so i did the swatch and looked lie the size 8 is what the swatch showed but when I knit the mitts the cuff was too wide. Therefore I went back to size 6 for the cuff and size 7 for the hand. Now I am afraid of using my expensive yarn. Help I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

Well I would go by the swatch. Use whatever size needle gives you the correct amount of stitches in an inch. If the cuff is too wide go down a size in the actual mitten. It has a lot if stretch.

you can always take out the mitten and re use your expensive yarn.. i just love the way the premium yarns feel and dont split compared to the others

I agree about using cheaper yarn to try out a pattern. I don't like to spend a lot of money for something I don't like working on. You did a great job, What didn't you like about the pattern?or mittens?

thanks!- Well i dont know if it was me or the mittens but the bind off wasnt working for me..too tight. I tried using a larger needle to bind off and i used the rib bind off. Guess i needed to do it even looser. It could just be my hands- they arent petite. I guess i didnt like the way they looked on my hands. I will try again after i venture on to the next pair in the series.
