PATTERN: See diagram M.1 and M.2. Diagrams show the pattern from RS. The entire pattern is worked in stocking st.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 52 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with off-white. K 1 round, and then work 4 rounds rib K1/ P1. Continue in M.1. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When you reach the 3 black squares in diagram (round 39) continue in M.2 on these 3 sts. Inc in M.2 with 1 YO inside 1 st each side, on next round K YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. After 5 inc (= 10 inc sts, and 13 sts for thumb gusset) work 4 rounds without inc (see M.2) and now slip the 13 thumb sts on a stitch holder. Cast on 3 new sts behind sts on stitch holder = 52 sts. Continue in the round in M.1. When dec at the top of M.1 dec each side of the off-white st each side with lavender. Dec as follows before the off-white st: K2 tog. Dec as follows after the off-white st: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso. After all dec there are 12 sts left on needle, cut the threads, pull through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Slip the 13 thumb sts back on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and pick up 9 sts behind thumb = 22 sts. Continue in the round in M.2. Dec each side of the lavender st each side (dec with off-white). Dec as follows before the lavender st: K2 tog. Dec as follows after the lavender st: slip 1 st as if to K, K1, psso. After all dec there are 6 sts left on needle, cut the threads, pull though remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

RIGHT MITTEN: Cast on and work like left mitten, but mirrored, i.e. work the 3 black squares in diagram in st no 4, 5, and 6 from the right side of diagram.
