I wanted to make some fingerless mitts for myself. Why Not? I’ve made at least 8 pairs and given them away. It’s my turn.
I loved the free pattern “Treads” so I started a pair for me a few weeks ago.
Then other things got placed ahead of the mitts.
I picked them back up yesterday and finished one. My gauge was off. It was way too big.
Started it again.
Still not right.
Started it a third time and realised I dropped a stitch below the Lateral Braid and there was no way to fix it.
I gave up. I still love the pattern. It is well written and has excellent directions for making a Lateral Braid. I didn’t like the yarn I was using. And I must have short hands since the finished mitt did not fit my hand the way it does in the pattern.
How many times do you start or restart a pattern before abandoning it?
