Knitting Tension: 24 sts x 32 rows on needles size 3 mm in stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: *K2, P3*, repeat from *-*

Pattern: See diagram M.1 and M.2

Right Glove:
Cast on 60 sts on double pointed needle size 3 mm in Alpaca and distribute sts evenly on 3 double pointed needles and knit 2 rounds stocking stitch. Continue in Rib – see explanation above.
When piece measures 10 cm reduce every other purl report from 3P to 2P.
When piece measures 14 cm, reduce the remaining purl reports from 3P to 2P = 48 sts.
When piece measures 16 cm knit M.1 – make sure the pattern starts with purl over knit and knit over purl. At the same time, after 2 rows in M.1 increase for thumb gusset on each side of the 3rd and 4th st at the beg of the row (= 2 inc sts).
Increase on every other row a total of 6 times = 14 sts in the gusset (incorporate the inc. sts in M.1 as you go along).
When piece measures 21 cm put these 14 sts on a safety pin. On next row, cast on 2 new sts behind sts on safety pin = 48 sts on needle and continue in pattern M.1 as before.
When piece measures 25 cm – make sure it fits with a “window” – knit M.2 over all sts - make sure the pattern starts with P over K and K over P.
When piece measures 28cm, bind off in Rib.

Thumb: Put the 14 sts from safety pin back on needle and pick up 6 sts behind these 14 sts = 20 sts. Distribute the 20 sts on 3 double pointed needles and knit M.2 approx. 2 cm. Bind off in Rib. Knit another mitten, but mirrored.
