Replace first hdc on row with ch 2, finish row with 1 hdc in 2nd ch from beg of previous row.

Replace first dc on round with 3 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Replace first sc on round with 1 ch and finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round.

Work 1 dc, but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work next dc, but when doing the last pull-through pull thread through all sts on hook = 1 dec dc.

Work 1 sc, but wait with the last pull-through, work next sc and pull thread through both sts on hook.

Crochet the cuffs first back and forth in rib-structure, then form a ring, pick up new sts round the ring and crochet the mitten in the round towards the fingertips.

Ch 14 with hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Alaska and work first row as follows: 1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in each of the next 11 ch = 13 hdc, turn piece. See CROCHET INFO-1. Continue with 1 hdc in each hdc but work each hdc in the back loop of st (in.e. not through the whole st) = rib-structure.
When piece measures 20-22 cm / 8"-8 3/4" make 2 buttonholes as follows: work 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 3 hdc, ch 2, skip 2 sts, 1 hdc in each of the last 3 sts, turn piece. Work 1 hdc in each hdc and 2 hdc in each ch space = 13 hdc, cut and fasten thread.
Insert a marker in the middle of the edge of cuff.

Slip the cuff tog to a ring with the 2 rows on the side with buttonholes sitting over the 2 rows the opposite side = buttonhole split. See CROCHET INFO-2. Beg by marker and crochet alternately 1 and 2 sc in each row all the way round – NOTE: by buttonhole split crochet through both layers = approx 30-33 sc. Continue with 1 dc in each st, AT THE SAME TIME adjust no of sts to 27-30 dc by crochet 2 dc tog with regular intervals – see above. AT THE SAME TIME after 3 rounds with dc inc 1 dc for thumb each side of first st on round - inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in the same st. Repeat the inc each side of this st on every round a total of 4-5 times = 35-40 dc on round (thumb sts = 9-11 dc). Work next round as follows: 1 sl st in each of the 6-7 first dc on beg of round, 3 ch (= 1 dc), then 1 dc in each of the next 25-28 dc, 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 26-29 dc and 1 ch on round. On next round work 1 dc in each dc and 1 dc in ch at the end of round = 27-30 dc. Continue with dc in the round until mitten measures 17-20 cm / 6 3/4"-8" from cuff (3 cm / 1" remain, try mitten on for correct measurements).
Continue as follows:
ROUND 1: 1 dc in each dc AT THE SAME TIME work every 2nd and 3rd dc tog = 18-20 dc.
ROUND 2: work 2 dc tog around = 9-10 st.
ROUND 3: 1 sc in each dc AT THE SAME TIME work 2 sc tog around. Cut the thread, pull it through remaining sts, tighten tog and fasten.

Round 1: Crochet 1 sl st in the first of the 9-11 thumb sts, ch 3 (= 1 dc), then 1 dc in each of the 8-10 dc, then 6 dc in the edge behind thumb, AT THE SAME TIME work these 6 dc tog 2 by 2 – see above = 12-14 dc.
Round 2 + 3: 1 dc in each dc = 12-14 dc.
Approx 1 cm / 3/8'' now remain – try mitten on for right measurement, if needed work an extra round here.
NEXT ROUND: Work 2 dc tog around = 6-7 dc.
LAST ROUND: Work 2 dc tog around. Cut the thread, pull through remaining sts, tighten and fasten.

Crochet the other mitten in the same way, but mirrored, i.e. make buttonhole split the opposite side and inc for thumb each side of the last st on round instead of the first. Sew on buttons.
