Crochet info: Crochet htr around and around without finishing the round.

Crochet 2 htr together to 1 htr as follows:
Crochet 1 htr, but wait with last yarn over and ‘pull through’ (= 3 sts on hook), crochet following htr but now draw last yarn over through all 5 sts on hook – it is now dec 1 htr.

Mitten: Read Crochet info!
Crochet 22 loose ch with hook size 6 mm and Alaska (ch-band shall measure approx 20 cm,) and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Crochet 3 rounds with htr by crocheting in back loop - crochets 1 htr in every ch = 22 htr. Then crochet htr around by crocheting through both loops.
When piece measures 13 cm make an opening for thumb by crocheting 4 loose ch in the beg of round, skip following 4 htr and continue with htr around as before (opening for thumb ís approx 4 cm,). On next round crochet 1 htr in 4 ch that was crocheted ´for thumb-opening = 22 htr. Continue around until piece measures 21 cm, or to desired length (it remains approx 3 cm to finished measure). Now dec by crocheting 2 by 2 htr tog all around the round– read instruction above = 11 htr. Crochet 1 round without dec, then crochet 1 round at the same time as dec like earlier = 6 htr. Crochet 1 round again with dec the same way = 3 htr. Pull thread through remaining sts and pull together, sew away ends.

Thumb: Crochet 8 htr around opening on thumb (1 htr in 4 skipped sts and 1 htr in 4 ch above these). Crochet htr around as before by crocheting through both loops. When thumb measures approx 5 cm (or desired length) crochet 1 round at the same time as dec by crocheting 2 by 2 htr tog around = 4 htr. Pull thread through remaining sts and pull together, sew away ends.
Crochet 1 more mitten the same way.

Crocheted edge: Crochet around edge on mitten with hook size 6 mm with Puddel as follows:
1st row: 1 dc in 1st htr (start on inside of mitten), * 3 ch, skip 1 htr, 1 dc in following htr *, repeat *-* and finish with 3 ch.
2nd row: Crochet the same way as 1st round but crochet first dc in 2nd htr so that the two rounds works in every other htr.

Decoration: Crochet one simple pattern on upper side of mitten with hook size 6 mm and with Puddel. Crochet * 1 dc through htr on mitten, 2 ch *, repeat *-* and finish with 1 sl st through 1 htr on mitten.
