What advice would you give someone starting this project? Fits all of the woman I asked to try it. That includes me, with my wider-than-normal, somewhat short hands, and my tall co-worker, who describes her hands as man-hands. For the record, she has quite pretty hands that fit her frame. The actual mitten, unstretched in any way, measures 8 around just above the thumb and 6.75 from the very tip to the beginning of the wrist ribbing. The thumb is 3.5 long at its longest point. That seems alarming, but, anatomically speaking, the measurement from the tip of my thumb to the joint where it meets my wrist is 4, which is a lot longer than I thought. It is also, roughly, the area that particular stretch of fabric is meant to cover. The advantage of garter-stitch, of course, is that the mitten is super-stretchy, which gives it a forgiving nature when it comes to fit. Gauge: 5 stitches per i
