--------------------------------------------------------

RIGHT MITTEN:
Worked back and forth in one piece and sewn tog afterwards. Worked in garter st throughout, i.e. K all rows.
Cast on 66-74 sts on needle size 2.5 mm with Fabel. Insert 1 marker in st 17-19, 1 marker after 33-37 sts (= the side) and 1 marker in st 50-56.
Continue in ZIGZAG PATTERN – see above.
When piece measures 12-13 cm work next row from RS like first row in Zigzag pattern, but without inc, i.e. only dec 4 sts = 62-70 sts.
K 1 row from WS, and continue in Zigzag pattern with inc and dec as before.
When piece measures 13-14 cm insert a marker at beg of row (marks the thumb). Work next row as follows (= from RS): Work 1 st, work 2 sts in each of the next 5 sts (= 5 inc sts), continue until 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, continue until 2 sts before next marker (= the side), inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, work 2 sts, inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, continue until 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, continue until 6 sts remain on needle, work 2 sts in each of the next 5 sts (= 5 inc sts), work 1 st.
There are now 4 inc sts each side for thumb gusset = 70-78 sts on needle. K 1 row from WS.
Continue in Zigzag pattern with inc and dec as before.
When piece measures 18-19 cm work next row as follows (from RS): Work 1 st, inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, K2 tog on the next 8 sts, continue until 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, continue until 2 sts before next marker (= the side), inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, work 2 sts, inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, continue until 1 st before st with marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso, continue until 10 sts remain on needle, K2 tog on the next 8 sts, inc 1 st by working 2 sts in 1 st, work 1 st. There are now 62-70 sts on needle. K 1 row on all sts.
Insert a marker at beg of row (marks the thumb). Continue in Zigzag pattern as before until piece measures 24-25 cm (4-5 cm remain). Now continue in Zigzag pattern, but without inc, i.e. only dec 4 sts on every other row.
Continue like this until 14-18 sts remain on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts. Tighten and fasten thread.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew side seam, beg at bottom edge and sew up to first marker that marks the thumb. Sew in outer loops of sts to avoid a chunky seam.

THUMB:

Now pick up 1 st in the middle of side seam and pick up 15-16 sts up along the edge to top marker = 31-33 sts. K 1 row from WS. Insert a marker in the middle st. Now continue back and forth on needle, AT THE SAME TIME dec 2 sts in the middle by working row until 1 st before marker, slip 1 st as if to K, K2 tog, psso. Repeat the dec on every 4th row a total of 4-5 times and then on every other row a total of 8 times = 7 sts left on needle. Cut the thread and pull it through remaining sts. Tighten and fasten thread.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew tog in outer loops of sts from the top of thumb, down along the thumb and up along the side to the top of mitten.

LEFT MITTEN:

Hei Herdis. Du setter merketrådene først, før du begynner å strikke sik-sak mønsteret. Du setter en tråd i den 17. masken, en tråd mellom den 37 og 38 masken, dette er i siden, deretter i den 56 masken. Da ser du at du har en spiss oppå votten, en i siden og en midt under. Den fjerde blir når du syr sammen voten i siden. Lykke til. Marit

Jeg synes det var vanskeligt å fostå siksakk mønsterett å hvor jeg skulle stte de merkene.Etter den 19 masken og etter 37 osv.
