Thanks so much, cowpants! I'm so glad I checked on-line to see if anybody else had run into the problem of how many lace insertion patterns to knit before the thumb gusset starts. I'm a beginner knitter -- long time quiltmaker -- but I really want to make these for my friend who will be showing her tiny crocheted jewelry at Dickens on the Strand this Christmas time. But dang! These are the hardest things I've ever done! I believe this is worse than what I remember of childbirth! :-D

There is an error in the pattern. After the first 4 rows of the lace pattern, the pattern goes directly into the thumb gusset -- it does not indicate how long to make the cuff. It looks like 8 repeats of the lace (32 rows), then start the thumb gusset. If you want to make it longer or shorter, just do multiples of 4 rows so your thumb gusset starts with row 1 of the lace pattern.   =)

Hi Sewn2history, "linen" is the color of the yarn.  =)

I want to make these, but I need to ask, do you hold the cotton and linen yarns together?  I assume that you do, but wanted to be sure. I could not find the information in the pattern. 

 

Thanks!
