Knitting Tension: 21 x 28 rows on needles size 4 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See diagram M.1.

Right wrist warmer:
Cast on 40-48 sts on double pointed needle size 3 mm with light grey. Knit 10 cm Rib, K2/P2. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit 1 round, at the same time for size S/M inc 1 st = 41 sts.
Now continue in M.1. After 2 rounds of M.1 insert a marker at the beg of round and make inc for thumb as follows:
1st round: Knit without inc
2nd round: Knit without inc
3rd round: Knit until 1 st left before the marker, inc 1 st (incorporate new sts in pattern as you go along)
4th round: Knit 1 st, inc 1 st in the second st after the marker and finish the round.
Repeat round 1 to 4 until there are 6 new sts on each side of the MT = 53-60 sts. Knit 2 rounds and then put the 12 thumb sts on a thread. On the next round cast on 2 new sts behind the 12 thumb sts = 43-50 sts on round. Finish M.1, piece measures approx 24 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit 5 rounds in Rib with light grey and cast off loosely.
Thumb: Put the 12 thumb sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm and pick up 2 new sts in the 2 sts cast on behind sts on thread = 14 sts. Knit 1 round and at the same time adjust the number of sts to 12- 16 sts. Knit 4 rounds in Rib with light grey. Cast off loosely.

Left wrist warmer: Cast on and knit as right wrist warmer, but insert the marker in size L/XL in the 9th st from beg of round.

Pattern 98-8, finish M.1, 43 sts change to 3mm and work 5 rounds in rib, k2/p2? This makes rib uneven? Right and left wrist warmers in size small are worked same?

Canada 22.01.2018 - 01:56:

Pattern 98-8, for thumb gusset stitches, 6 new stitches on each side of marker. Put 12 stitches on stitch holder, is this done at beginning of row?

DROPS Design 22.01.2018 kl. 10:38:

Dear Canada, for right mitten you will slip the 6 sts inc before marker + the 6 sts inc after marker on a thread for thumb, start slipping on the thread the 6 sts before end of round + 6 sts from beg of round = 12 sts for the thumb, cast on 2 new sts over these 12 sts = 43-50 sts for hand. Happy knitting!

DROPS Design 04.12.2017 kl. 09:40:

Dear Bev, you can use any specific technique to increase. Happy knitting!

Beverly Adams 03.12.2017 - 02:56:

Change to dpn US 6 and knit 1 round, at the same time inc.1 st =41. Where is the increase made? At beginning of row? Pattern 98-8.

DROPS Design 03.12.2017 kl. 06:14:

Hi Beverly, Yes, the increase is made at the beginning og the round. Happy knitting!

It's very usefull for me thank you

Sophie K 11.02.2016 - 07:32:

Bonjour, je crois qu'il y a une erreur dans les explications en français : "diminuer pour le pouce comme suit " alors qu'il s'agit je pense d'augmentations. J'ai vérifié dans les explications en anglais, on y parle bien d' "increase" ;) Il y aussi une autre différence pour le nombre de maille au moment du pouce, en anglais vous dites d'abord : "53-60 mailles" et ensuite "43-50 mailles" alors qu'en français ça donne : "53-60 mailles" et ensuite "53-50 mailles".

DROPS Design 11.02.2016 kl. 11:04:

Bonjour Sophie K, c'est exact, les explications ont été corrigées, merci. Bon tricot!

Kan skriva ut bilden men, hur skriver jag ut själva mönstret? Har testat flera gånger. Klickar på skriv ut mönster, då kommer jag till en annan bild. Där står skriv ut mönster. Klickar där, men då kommer jag tillbaka till mönsterbilden igen. :(

DROPS Design 04.05.2015 kl. 11:48:

Hej Karina. Er du sikker paa du skriver ut mönstret? Jeg har ingen problemer her med at udskrive mönstret. Jeg kan desvaerre ikke se der er nogen fejl.

Pattern help:DROPS 98-8 by DROPS Design "Wrist warmers in stylish "traditional" pattern. There are 41 stitches on the needle and the repeat is 16 stitches. How does that work?

DROPS Design 06.10.2014 kl. 09:28:

Dear Regina, you will repeat a total of 2 times the 16 sts in diagram + repeat first 9 sts = 41 sts. Happy knitting!

Regina 27.09.2014 - 16:59:

I have 40 stitches on my needles. The pattern is a 16 stitch repeat. 40 is not divisible by 16. Is the pattern repeated 2 1/2 times?

DROPS Design 29.09.2014 kl. 10:29:

Dear Regina, you work the pattern over the 40 sts, ie repeat the diagram a total of 2 times + work the first 8 sts of diagram. Happy knitting!

Lisa 29.11.2013 - 11:13:

Hallo, ich habe ebenfalls Probleme mit dem Muster, es geht nicht auf. Die Maschenanzahl (Größe S) ist immer ungerade (41, 43, 45...) und das Muster setzt in fast jeder Reihe (auch zu Beginn) eine gerade Maschenanzahl voraus. Oder habe ich das falsch verstanden? Vielen Dank für die immer schnelle Hilfe!

DROPS Design 01.12.2013 kl. 09:13:

Liebe Lisa, stricken Sie das Muster immer so weit, bis die Rd von der Maschenanzahl her zu Ende ist. Durch die ständig wechselne Maschenzahl wegen des Daumenkeils, kann das Muster nicht komplett zur Runde geschlossen werden, ob gerade oder ungerade Maschenzahl. Und vor dem Daumenkeil ist in M1 noch kein Muster, nur verschiedenfarbige Runden. Ich hoffe, dass ich Ihre Frage richtig verstanden habe.
