Crochet gauge: 14 sl st = approx. 10 cm in width

Crochet tips: Crochet sl st in the round without joining at end of row.

Ch 28 loosely (the chain should measure approx. 26 cm, or ch to desired length, your mitten will be approx. 5-6 cm smaller than chain) and join into a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Crochet 3 rows with sl st in the back loop of each ch/sl st = 28 sl st.
Continue to crochet sl st but now through both loops. When the piece measures 13 cm/5 1/8" make an opening for the thumb: ch 5 loosely at the start of row, skip over the next 5 sl st and continue with sl st as before (the opening for thumb should be approx. 4 cm/1½", if yours does not measure that, inc or dec the number of sts and skip over the same number of sts that you ch).
On the next row sl st in each of the ch 5 = 28 sl st.
Continue until piece measures 24 cm/9½", or to desired length (approx. 2 cm/3/4" remain to finished measurements).
Now dec by skipping over every other sl st around row = 14 sl st. Crochet 1 row without decs, then on the next row dec by skipping over every other sl st around row = 7 sl st.
Crochet another row with decs = 3 or 4 sl st remain.
Pull yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight, fasten neatly.

Thumb: Crochet 10 sl st round the opening for the thumb (1 sl st in each skipped sl st and 1 sl st in each crochet ch). Continue crochet sl st as before. When thumb measures 5 cm/2" (or desired length) dec. as follows: crochet sl st but skip every other sl st = 5 sl st remain.
Pull yarn through the remaining sts and pull tight, fasten neatly.
