Pattern was easy to follow. I did more decrease round at thumb and top of mitten. Also I didn't change to gray and blue, but rather used the main brown color for the back palm side. Without a join the waistcoat stitch sort of "drifts" sideways, so if I make another pair I might try to carry the front pattern all the way around.

I love a chart, and this was a nice pattern to follow. Directions on how to do the thumbs could have been clearer, with a couple more illustrative photos, maybe, but I got there!
