    I want to make these for a adult woman. How high up on the fingers do they go? I would think they should go to about the knuckle. thank you…A Please recommend a yarn content…A

      These do go to about the knuckle. I think any worsted weight yarn would work well. Due to wool allergies, I have been making them out of acrylic but have also used Knit Picks Shine (a cotton and beech wood blend) with great results.

    I believe there is an error on row 49 should read 6 not 8 in the middle,

      Thank you for catching that. I have gone in and changed the pattern to the correct stitches.

    Well shoot. It posted before I was ready. Sorry.

    Anyway, Row 43: *K2P2* 3 times, *KFB* 2 times, *K2P2* 6 times (42 stitches)
    K2P2= 4 st KFB= 2 st
    So, 4 x 3 = 12; 2 x 2 = 4; 4 x 6 = 24. 12 + 4 + 24 = 40st

    I have 2 extra stitches at the end of the round………

    Found another error on Row 53. There are those two purl stitches immediately after doing the backward loop 1 st CO that are not accounted for in the pattern.

    1. Mandy

      There should be a P2 on both of those line to follow in the pattern. I thought I had added that. I will have to be more careful typing in patterns next time.
