just downloaded your pattern for mittens and have one question. What is an ewrap?
An “ewrap” is how you wrap your yarn on the pegs of the round loom. When you wrap the yarn around the pegs the shape resembles an “e”, thus..ewrap. Hope this helps.
Im trying to make my husbands friend a pair of mittens however I can’t seem to find a pattern for his size he is 6’7″ and has huge hands, so like a (xxxl) can you help me Im a beginner. I have tried several patterns and they have turned out looking like a sock lol : ) Thanks for your time.
Hi Angie! 🙂 I would definitely try this particular pattern, as it’s plenty roomy width-wise…all you would need to do is create more rows for both the thumb and the straight finger section (before the decreases).
I want to make the kid sized mittens but have never used less pegs than what is on my loom. How would I go about using only 20 of the 24 pegs? I can’t imagine leaving all four unused pegs together because that would create a large hole in the mitten would it not? Or do you do just that and sew it up like the sides of the thumb?
Hi Doreen! 🙂 You can easily create a flat panel on a round loom, rather than a tube, by knitting your rows back an forth, rather than around in circles. So, in the case of the children’s mittens, you’d knit to the 20th peg as the pattern states, then turn around and knit the other way, from peg 20, then back to your peg 1. Does that make sense? This flat panel will then be seamed together after the mitten is off the loom.
Here is a video on how to create a flat panel for your better understanding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7kEzyQJBiw
Hope that helps! 🙂
