Broad Street Mittens

Ok, so currently I am working on two pairs of Broad Street Mittens (knitty.com), one pair for each of my brothers. I made one pair last year, for me, following the pattern exactly. They were a little big, but for me they were fine. My concern is that I’m knitting these for guys with big hands. I am wondering if I were to cast on 52, then increase to 64 if that would increase the size just enough so that they would still be snug on my brothers hands… I don’t know if anyone really reads this blog, but I could use some input if you’ve made these for guys… I have one brother’s handprint traced out, thinking that would help…

I have been knitting the first left hand on my 2 circulars and I love how fast it has gone!!
