Left wrist warmer: Worked in the round on double pointed needles. Cast on 45-49 sts on needle size 3.5 with Karisma. K 1 round and continue as follows: K 0-2 sts, P 3 sts, rib K2/P2 on the next 42-44 sts. When piece measures 4 cm change to needle size 4 mm and continue as follows: P 0-2 sts, M.1 (= 27 sts), P 18-20 sts. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 15 cm beg inc for thumb gusset. Inc 1 st on both sides of the last st on round – inc by making 1 YO (to avoid a hole work YO into back of loop on next round). Inc on every 4th round a total of 4-5 times = 9-11 thumb sts and 53-59 sts in total. When piece measures 20-21 cm slip thumb sts + 1 st on both sides (= 11-13 sts) on a stitch holder. Cast on 3 new sts behind the thumb = 45-49 sts. Continue in pattern until piece measures 23-24 cm, and now continue in rib on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm as follows: K 0-2 sts, P 3 sts, rib K2/P2 on the next 42-44 sts. Cast off in rib when piece measures 27-28 cm.
Thumb: Slip the 11-13 sts from stitch holder back on needle size 3.5 mm and pick up 3 sts in the edge of the 3 sts cast on behind thumb gusset = 14-16 sts. K 1 round, at the same time dec 2-0 sts evenly = 12-16 sts. Work rib, K2/P2, until thumb measures 4 cm and cast off in rib.
Right wrist warmer: Like left wrist warmer, but mirrored, i.e. work pattern as follows: P 18-20 sts, M.1 (= 27 sts), P 0-2 sts. Inc for thumb gusset on both sides of the second st on round instead of the last st.

How do i get this pattern

Christina Pust 07.10.2018 - 17:42:

Ich verstehe die Stelle mit dem Daumen nicht. Wenn ich das 4x wiederholen soll, wieso sind es dann 9 Daumenmaschen? Oder zählt die letzte Masche dann dazu? Und wenn ich 4x wiederholen soll, habe ich es dann nicht insgesamt 5x gemacht?\r\nBrauche echt Hilfe, verstehe diesen Punkt nicht.

DROPS Design 08.10.2018 kl. 10:04:

Liebe Frau Pust, für den Daumen werden Sie auf beiden Seiten der letzten Masche (lefter Handschuh) zunehmen, nach 1. Zunahmen haben Sie 3 M für den Daumen, nach 4 Zunahmen haben Sie insgesamt 8 Maschen zugenommen + die Masche in der Mitte = es sind jetzt 9 M für den Daumen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Es wurden schon so viele schöne Namen für das Muster vorgeschlagen - wann wählen Sie denn einen aus? Sassenach finde ich auch sehr passend! LG

Camilla Fritsborn 26.11.2015 - 15:27:

Vad menas med 0-2 maskor i början på arbetet? Dum fråga kanske men jag är nybörjare på stickning

Hej Camille, genom hela beskrivningen hittar du 2 siffror med bindestreck mellan. Det är ett tal för varje storlek. Här i beskrivningen har du 2 storlekar: Storlek: S/M - L/XL. Se även "Tips & Hjälp" Lycka till!

Mie Iversen 01.12.2014 - 20:44:

Jeg forstår ikke hvorfor der i de første 4 cm er de 3 vr og det ikke bare er 2r/2vr? Hvor er de tre vr placeret ift. M1?

DROPS Design 02.12.2014 kl. 10:29:

Hej Mie, Det er bar for at få maskeantallet til at passe. M.1 starter lige over de 3 vr når arb måler 4 cm. God fornøjelse!

Bonjour Je suis à faire le patron de mitaine je veux savoir que veux dire une maille envers sur l'endroit, le dedans de la main n'ai pas tricoté en jersey j'attends votre réponse

DROPS Design 02.10.2014 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Mme Norris, les mitaines se tricotent en rond en jersey end pour la torsade (= mailles à tricoter à l'endroit) et en jersey env entre les torsades et paume de la main (= mailles à tricoter à l'envers). Bon tricot!

I am unsure about the YO increases for the thumb on the left hand. I know how to do the YOs that is fine. But on the round following the YOs, I am not sure if I need to knit into the back of the loop in the same way on both these YOs as the 2nd YO is done before a knit stitch & the 1st YO is before a purl stitch. Do I knit into the back of these 2 YOs in the same way.

DROPS Design 16.06.2014 kl. 15:07:

Dear Renée, you should work all YOs (ie the increase sts) into back of loop in order to avoid holes, ie on next row P YOs into back of loop. Happy knitting!

Renée 03.06.2014 - 14:00:

Thanks, I figured it out anyway and completed the wrist warmers yesterday. I am very pleased with the end result. They are really lovely.

Renée 31.05.2014 - 16:08:

When slipping the 11 thumb sts for the Right hand wrist warmer, you need to slip the first 11 sts from the beginning of the round. You do not need to take the knit st from the end of the previous round as the YO increases were done before & after the 2nd stitch. Is this correct?

DROPS Design 03.06.2014 kl. 09:28:

Dear Renée, when all inc for thumb gusset are done, slip on a st holder all thumb sts + 1 st before all inc sts + 1 st after all inc sts (for left wrist warmer, you will put aside the 1st st on round). Happy knitting!

Renée 20.05.2014 - 15:41:

I forgot to ask in my last post, when you slip the thumb stitches, you need to slip 1 st from either side of the 9 sts, giving 11 sts in total. But slipping this 11th stitch from the beginning of the round onto the stitch holder - does this not throw the pattern off, as M.1 starts with 2 knit stitches & you have just slipped one of them off for the thumb opening. How do you compensate for this? I know you cast on 3 new ones at the end of the round. Can you please clarify.

DROPS Design 20.05.2014 kl. 15:48:

Dear Renée, follow the pattern as before, ie the first 2 sts casted on over thumb will be P (as the other sts on upper hand) and the 3rd st will be K as before (as the first st from beg of round). Happy knitting
