Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Countess Mitts 1250:
The grid and written instructions don't match. There are errors in the grid. I notice my mitts and several other people's mitts on Ravelry don't lay as flatly as the ones in the photo. That is a disappointment to me. The ribbing at the top, around the palm of the hand wants to curl down toward the base of the hand. I'm going to rip them out and use the yarn for something else.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: I'm so sorry you had trouble with the pattern. Blue Sky Alpacas has added an errata for this pattern. You can find it here: http://blueskyalpacas.com/file/upload/CountessMittsCorrection.pdf
