Has Anyone Knit These? Fingerless Mittens

They are Lionbrand Cashmere “Arm Cozies”. I’m having a problem and I just want to make sure I’m not crazy!

I decided to make these for xmas for my sister, I ordered the yarn online because it was on sale. I looked at the pattern, then ordered 3 skeins of the Cashmere Blend. I started the pattern, then decided to “rewrite” it a bit and do it in the round. Well I put that off so I could finish my Dickinson Pullover.

So today, I go to the website to copy and paste the pattern in Word, “rewrite” it, and print it again. When I went to the page the pattern says you need 4 skeins of the Cashmere blend! :??

I could have sworn it was 3 when I first found the pattern, and I even checked it before I ordered the yarn. Now I’m not sure what to do - I’ll probably end up ordering more, but the lot won’t be the same (and it won’t be on sale) - Has anyone done these before? and did you use 3 or 4 skeins?

I just can’t imagine I would have had the pattern website up when I ordered, and then ordered the wrong amount…maybe I am going nuts! :shifty:

I checked on Ravelry and people either report having used 2 skeins or 4 skeins. I think people tend to vary the length – like it takes 4 skeins to make the ones that go over your elbows, but you could definitely make them shorter and only use 2 or 3. (Hard to say though because most people don’t show the tops in their photos!)

Thanks for checking for me, I’m still waiting for my Ravelry invite! Only 986 people in front of me though :mrgreen:

I don’t think I’m ready to try knitting two in the round at the same time! I saw the article on Knitty about knitting two socks at the same time and I was amazed!

Maybe on the next pair (if I’m brave) :wink:
