Pattern: See diagram M.1 to M.4. Diagram shows the pattern from the RS. Work the entire pattern in stocking st.

Right mitten: Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 48-56 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm with dark grey and work 3 cm stocking st. Work next round as follows: * K2 tog, 1 YO *, repeat from *-*(= eyelet row). Work 3 cm stocking st. Fold the edge double and fasten on the WS after the mitten is done. Now continue working pattern as in M.1 (= 11-13 sts), at the same time dec 4-4 sts evenly on first round = 44-52 sts. After M.1 work next round as follows: M.2 (= 5 sts), M.3 (= 17-21 sts), M.2, M.4 on the next 17-21 sts, (M.3 = upper hand). Insert a Marking Thread (MT) in st 28-32 (= first st in M.4) to mark the thumb and now measure piece from here. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 1 cm inc 1 st on each side of st with MT on every 3 round a total of 6-7 times = 56-66 sts – incorporate the inc sts in M.4 as you go along. When piece measures 6.5-7 cm slip the 12-14 inc sts + st with MT (=13-15 sts) on a stitch holder. On next round cast on 1 new st behind stitch holder = 44-52 sts. Continue in pattern until piece measures 17-18 cm (3-4 cm left) and now dec on both sides of M.2 on every round by K 2 tog each side (= 4 dec per round) a total of 10-11 times = 4-8 sts left. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Thumb: Slip the 13-15 thumb sts back on double pointed needles and pick up 1 st behind thumb. Work M.4, at the same time inc 2-4 sts evenly on first round = 16-20 sts. Work 6.5-7 cm of M.4, on next round K all sts tog 2 by 2, cut the thread, pull through remaining sts and fasten.
Left mitten: Cast on and work like right mitten, but mirrored, i.e. insert MT for thumb in the last st in M.4.
