See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next row K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.

Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 40 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with moss green and K 1 round. Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 5 cm / 2''. Switch to double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and K 1 round while at the same time dec 4 sts evenly = 36 sts. Then continue in stockinette st until finished measurements. Work A.1 over all sts (= 6 repetitions in width). When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, continue with wheat - REMEMBER KNITTING GAUGE. When piece measures 9 cm / 3½'', inc 1 st on each side of first st on round for thumb - READ INCREASE TIP. Repeat inc on each side of the inc sts on every other round a total of 5 times = 46 sts. Now slip the 11 thumb sts on 1 stitch holder. Work 1 round and cast on 1 new st behind the thumb = 36 sts. Work A.2 over all sts (= 6 repetitions in width). When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, insert 1 marker in each side (= 18 sts between markers) and continue in wheat until piece measures approx. 22 cm / 8 3/4'' (try the mitten, approx. 4 cm / 1½'' remain until finished measurements). On next round dec in each side as follows: Work until 3 sts remain before marker, K 2 tog, K 2 (marker is between these sts), slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso, repeat dec every other round 2 more times, then every round 4 times = 8 sts remain. On next round, K all sts tog 2 by 2. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Slip the 11 thumb sts from stitch holder back on double pointed needles size 4 mm / US 6 and in addition knit up 4 sts along the edge behind the thumb sts with wheat = 15 sts. Work in stockinette st until the thumb itself measures approx. 5 cm / 2'' (try on the mitten, approx. ½ cm / 1/4'' remains until finished measurements). K 2 rounds AT THE SAME TIME K all sts tog 2 by 2 on both rounds. Cut the yarn and pull it through the remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Work as right mitten but reversed, i.e. inc for thumb on each side of last st on round (instead of each side of first st on round).

Hi, is Drops Air still being manufactured? I've visited all the sites given that ship to US and all are out of stock!

DROPS Design 19.02.2018 kl. 10:32:

Dear Mary, Air is still available but may just be out of stock in some stores, do not hesitate to contact them individually, they will let you know when they receive more. Happy knitting!

Hej, nu har jeg bestilt til at strikke disse vanter. Men hvor mange strømpepinde skal jeg bruge? Jeg har bestilt 2, jeg er nybegynder og ved ikke hvor mange man skal bruge??

DROPS Design 06.11.2017 kl. 07:40:

Hei Sabrina. 1 pakke med stømpepinner innholder 5 strikkepinner. Til å strikke disse vottene trenger du en pakke med strømpepinne størrelse nr 4 (eller det pinne nr du må bruke for å få 19 m x 25 p glstrikk på 10 x 10 cm). Og en pakke med strømpepinne størrelse nr 3,5 til vrangborden. Se gjerne våre videoer under oppskriften for å få veiledning til de ulike teknikkene for å strikke disse vottene. God Fornøyelse!

Is it possible to make the mittens a size larger?

DROPS Design 27.10.2017 kl. 10:06:

Dear Mimi, this pattern is only one-size but feel free to adjust to your own size with the help of a similar pattern - make sure the coloured pattern will match. Happy knitting!

Ivana 02.01.2016 - 23:12:

Beautiful pattern, but is there any instructions how to carry yarn when knitting chart A.2 (alternating colors)? It would be of great help! Thank You!

DROPS Design 04.01.2016 kl. 09:25:

Dear Ivana, chart A.2 is worked using the fair isle method, alway from RS (= in the round) - see videos below. Happy knitting!

Schlichtes aber sehr schönes Muster. Kleiner Fehler beim Übersetzen: bei 40 M auf der Nadel müsste es in der dritten Zeile heißen "4 M gleichmäßig verteilt abnehmen=36M" (- es werden ja weniger)

Love these! Best thing in the christmas countdown so far!
