An Important bit:
Please read all instructions and assemble requirements before beginning the pattern.
With 4.50mm needles, cast on 32 stitches. Divide stitches evenly between two needles. Join for knitting in the round and place a beginning of round marker.
tip: You can use three or four needles if you prefer.
Designer’ s comment:
My personal preference is two.
Knit 1x1 rib until the piece measures 8cm long.
tip: You can make this wrist section longer or shorter if you prefer.
Change to 16cm 5.00mm needles. Knit 3 rounds. Thumb gusset set-up round: make 1, knit 1, make 1, place a second marker (blue), knit to end of round.
tip: When you make 1, knit into the back loop to help avoid holes
Round 1: knit.
Round 2: knit.
Round 3: make 1, knit to marker, make 1, slip the marker across, knit to end of round.
Repeat rounds 1-3 four times until there are 13 stitches between the beginning of round and the marker.
Place stitches between the pink beginning of the round marker and the blue marker onto waste yarn, remove the markers.
Make 1 so that you have 16 stitches on both needles. Knit to end of round.
Knit until the glove measures 10cm from the top of the rib section.
Swap to 4.50mm needles and knit 1x1 rib to measure3cm.
Place the stitches on the waste yarn evenly back onto 12.5 cm needles. Knit and pick up one stitch from the body of the mitten. Close for knitting in the round.
Knit until the thumb measures 3cm and bind off.
Weave in the ends and tighten up any holes at the base of the thumb. Make a second mitten exactly the same.
