Three (Two?) Leaf Mitts

Found a skein of "Full O' Sheep" in the colourway, Meadow, on clearance for 50 cents (yes, it was 90% off) and decided to knit these mitts (31 of 50).

The pattern called for size 5 dpns but it was darn near impossible to use size 5 needles with the single-ply yarn! After frogging it a couple of times, I finally ended up using size 10 dpns (a quick check in the label had suggested size 9 needles...but I'm a tight knitter). Unfortunately, that meant that I had to make a few modifications along the way. The biggest change was a two leaf repeat as opposed to three leaves. I much prefer the three leaf look, so I'll have to try this pattern again with another yarn.
