Crochet Gauge: 14 slip sts = 10 cm.
Note: Because of different crochet techniques used by the individual, the gauge can vary, so you might have to drop a size up or down in hook size to obtain the correct gauge.

Crochet info: Crochet around in sl sts without finishing off rounds.

Crochet 28 ch. on hook size 7, in Eskimo (the ch sts string should measure approx 26 cm. You can add to this length should you wish the glove to be wider. The glove will be approx 5-6 cm smaller than the string) and form a ring with a sl st.
Crochet 3 rows sl st at the top loop of the st – 1 sl st in each ch/sl st = 28 sl st.
Continue to crochet sl st, but now crochet through the entire sl st. When the piece measures 13 cm make an opening for the thumb as follows: at beginning of row crochet 5 ch skip 5 sl st and continue row as before (the opening for the thumb will be approx 4 cm, you can change this size to be smaller or bigger depending on the number of ch and sl st you skip).
On next row crochet 1 sl st in each ch = 28 sl st.
Continue to crochet until the piece measures 24 cm (approx 2 cm shorter than the finished mitten).
Dec as follows: Continue crochet sl st but skip every other sl st = 14 sl sts on row.
Crochet 1 row.
On next row, again skip every other sl st = 7 sl st.
Dec 1 more time on last row = 3-4 sl st left.
Pull the thread through the remaining sts and pull together. Sew tight.

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 (or desired length) dec. as follows: crochet sl st but skip every other sl st = 5 sl st left. Pull the thread through the left sts. Pull together. Sew tight.
