MITTENS:
Sizes: (S/M) L/XL

Materials: DROPS KARISMA SUPERWASH from Garnstudio
(100)-100 gr nr 55, light brown heather
(50)- 50 gr nr 01, natural

DROPS 3.5 mm double-pointed needles, or size needed to obtain correct tension.

Tension: 22 sts x 30 rows in stocking st = 10 x 10 cm

Rib: *K 2, P 2*, repeat from *-*.

Pattern: The pattern is seen from the right side and is knit entirely in stocking st. Arrows indicate where the markers are placed for the sides. The different sizes are marked with lines, and are explained in the pattern below.

Decreasing tips (for top of mitten and thumb): Dec at each side of 5 sts on mitten and 3 sts on thumb. Start 4 sts before marker on mitten and 3 sts before marker on thumb and dec as follows: K 2 tog, 5 or 3 sts in pattern (the marker sits in the middle of these sts), sl 1 as if to knit, K 1, psso.

Left mitten: Cast on (48) 56 sts on double-pointed needles with light brown heather; join and knit rib – see instructions above. When the piece measures (12) 13 cm K 1 row, decreasing (8) 12 sts evenly distributed on the row = (40) 44 sts – measure the work from here.
Knit Pattern 1 (M.1). For Size S/M you will not knit all the sts shown in the chart. Start at lower edge in right corner of chart and knit to the left as follows: 2 sts, knit and put a marker in the next st (= side), 2 sts, (S/M skip 1 square), (11) 13 sts (from size line to size line = palm), (S/M skip 1 square), 2 sts, knit and put a marker in the next st (= side), 2 sts, (S/M skip 1 square), and (19) 21 sts (from size line to size line = upper hand). NOTE: the black squares are NOT sts – both sizes skip those squares on the chart.

Continue with pattern, increasing for thumb as shown in chart. After all thumb-sts are incd (= 11 sts) put these on a st holder. Cast on 11 new sts over sts on st holder and join = (48) 52 sts.

Continue to knit Pattern 1 (there are now (23) 25 sts between sts with markers at each side).
When the piece measures (17) 18 cm dec 1 st at each side of 5 sts at each side = 4 sts decd per row – see Decreasing tips above: dec every row (10) 11 times = 8 sts remain. Pull yarn through the remaining sts and fasten neatly.

Thumb: Put the 11 sts from st holder onto needles, and inc 13 sts = 24 sts. Divide sts onto 3 double-pointed needles and join. Knit Pattern 2 – place the pattern so that it follows the pattern over the sts from mitten and put a marker at each side (at arrows on chart). When thumb measures (4) 5 cm dec 1 st at each side of 3 sts at each marker as on mitten – see Decreasing tips above: dec every rows 5 times = 4 sts remain. Pull yarn through remaining sts and fasten neatly.

Right mitten: Knit the same as the left, reversing shaping.
