This pattern is pretty flexible. You can try it on as you go which is a big help if you find it is too tight or loose.
If you have a very slender arm you may want to drop down a needle size for the arm. The mitts pictured are for someone else. If I was to make them for myself I would probably use a size three needle in the wrist area instead of size 4.
Lengthen or shorten the arm as desired.
Same goes for the cuffs
If you have any questions, or I didn't explain something clearly, feel free to leave a comment and I will get back with you.
