I think I’m jinxed when it comes to Ysolda’s patterns.

I absolutely love nearly all of her designs, but I’m always a little apprehensive to start one because for some reason I will always inevitably make some stupid mistake or assumption that leads to a tangled mess that does not remotely resemble something wearable.

When I first started these, the first thing I did wrong was to assume that because they were gloves, they must be knit in the round. So I cast on 23 stitches and started knitting in round. It was not until an embarrassing number of stitches later that I realized that I was knitting a pretty little finger warmer.

My next attempt failed because I didn’t realize the chart is read back and forth and not all from the same side. In my defense, I’ve never actually used a chart that wasn’t symmetrical before. In my stupidity, I failed to realize that the chart was also written out until after I finished an entire cuff.


In the end we came to a truce, and the result is these gorgeous little gloves. These are going to live with my friend but I have a ton of the yarn left since they hardly require any so I’m definitely making a pair for myself.

Note to self: you have tiny wrists and maniacally large hands so make a small cuff and a large mitt.
