      Yes! It’s got longer color sections than most variegated yarns, but they’re not quite long enough to be called self-striping I think.

    LOVE THESE SO MUCH… I’m a “novice”. My grandma taught me when I was young. Now years later, trying to relearn, self teaching, trial & error. Looking forward to grandchildren, making, but until then, still figuring it out by myself :)

    Is it too much to ask that when you give a way a free pattern you have a printer-friendly printing mode. I can read the comments at my leisure. I do want the pattern and not all of the ads and comments unless they are corrections. The paper I use in the printer cost also. I would rather pay you 3 or 4 bucks to have just the pattern on one sheet of paper.

    This is one of the best fingerless glove patterns I have run across. Anxious to make them! Love the stitch, it is so different, but really simple! I hardly crochet over the summer because I am a fundraiser/event coordinator for a horse rescue for the best part of the year and have very little time to do the crafts/crochet projects that I love. I make things to sell at our events and want to incorporate these gloves for next years events. I read your ” about ” page as to selling the items from your patterns. I thank you for that and am happy to put your name on the tags for credit of the pattern. Thank you! Going to start crocheting them tomorrow! Thank you for the free pattern!

    I love this stitch and I am making the whole set (Gloves, hat, and cow!). that being said, I would love to have boot cuffs in this stitch too!!

    Gaaaah! This was EXACTLY the kind of pattern I was looking for this past winter. I made a hat for my daughter with the same kind of pattern (think it was called honeycomb in that one…) and I wanted to do the same for mittens. Looked *everywhere* and asked all my crochet friends. No one had any ideas where to find the pattern except for knit – I don’t knit. Now that I’m looking for patterns for the other daughter I find this. Go figure!
    Keeping it ‘on file’ for later.
    Thanks bunches!!!

    Hi Tamara, I really enjoy your designs and have made quite a few of your items! I’ve made two pairs of these mitts and wanted to check step 16 for each mitt where it says, “Between next 2 Vs, [sc, ch 1, sc], repeat between next 2 Vs.” I didn’t repeat between the next 2 Vs. on the right mitt as there weren’t any Vs left in the round. I had the correct number of Vs so I adjusted the left mitt to match. My mitts look and fit great so I was just wondering if I was correct to omit that part or if I did something wrong. Thanks!

    I love this stitch. I would love this pattern for a simple blanket. Like if you wrote it up and then said what the stitch count would be in multiples of so that it could be increased/decreased. If that makes sense. I am looking for cute patterns that I can use for baby dolls. If not that’s ok too! Thanks for sharing so many patterns already!
