Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting tension: 11 sts x 15 rows stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm
Moss stitch: 1st row: * K1, P1 *, repeat from *-*. 2nd row: K over P and P over K. Repeat 2nd row.
Increasing tips: Inc by YO1 sts. On next row knit into back of YO sts (i.e. knit into back part of sts, not knit into front of yo sts) to avoid a hole.
Rib: * K1, P2 *, repeat from *-*.
Garter st: Knit all rows back and forth on needle

Mittens: Knit piece back and forth on needle. Cast on 24-27 sts needle size 8 mm with Eskimo. Knit 2 rows garter sts. Continue in Rib - see explanation above – until piece measures 6 cm. Then knit 2 cm stocking sts , 4 rows garter sts - see explanation above – and 2 cm stocking sts. At the same time on last row stocking sts dec 4-5 sts evenly = 20-22 sts. Continue in moss sts – see explanation above. When piece measures 15-17 cm insert 1 marking thread or stitch marker in 9th -10th sts on row (= marker for thumb). Continuing inc 1 sts on each side of sts with marking thread or stitch marker on every other row 2 times in total = 24-26 sts. After last inc slip new sts (incl sts with marking thread or stitch marker) + 1 sts on each side of these sts onto thread or stitch holder for thumb = 7 thumb sts. Cast on 1 sts behind thumb sts and knit miss sts back and forth over 18-20 sts until piece measures approx 23-26 cm. Continue in stocking sts. When piece measures 27-30 cm knit all sts tog 2 by 2 = 9-10 sts left on row. Pull double thread through remaining sts, pull tog and sew away.

Thumb: Slip 7 sts from thread or stitch holder back onto needle. Cast on new sts on side and knit moss sts. When thumb measures approx 2.5-3.5 cm from where sts were slipped back onto needle knit 2 first and 2 last sts on row tog = 6 sts. Repeat dec on next row = 4 sts. Pull one double thread through remaining sts, pull tog and sew on well.

Assembly: Sew side seams on mitten and thumb in outermost part of outermost sts to avoid thick seam.
Knit 1 more mitten, but move marking thread or stitch marker to 11th -12th sts, to place thumb correctly.

Ik heb 8 steken voor de duim na alle meerderingen. In het patroon staat 7. Wat doe ik verkeerd?

Hoi W. de Haas. Je hebt 2 keer 1 st gemeerderd aan beide kanten van de 1 st met de merkdraad. Je plaatst vervolgens de 1 st + de nieuwe st (= 4) + 1 extra st aan beide kanten van de nieuwe st op een veiligheidsspeld = 7 st.

Hele votten strikkes jo fram og tilbake. Forrøøvrig en morrsom og lettvindt måte å strikke votter på. 2,5cm på tommelen før felling må være feil. Jeg tok drøye 5 cm og det ble bra. Jeg har SMÅ fingre.

Husk at tommelen strikkes fram og tilbake.

Hvordan gjordedere det med fellinga på tommelen. JEg fikk ikke til fra oppskrifta, så gjorde som på votten. Blebra. Ellers en fin vott som er morsom å strikke

Når man klikker sig frem til opskriften er der et andet foto, ikke vanter!

Verkar svåra att få till bra, det syns ju tex hål vid tummen.
